Lagos PDP Chieftain Babatunde Gbadamosi Defects To Labour Party
A stalwart of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Babatunde Gbadamosi, on Friday, defected to the Labour Party (LP), declaring support for its presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Mr Gbadamosi, a former governorship candidate of the African Democratic Party and a former Lagos East Senatorial Candidate of the PDP, made this known in a statement in Lagos.
“I had completely lost hope, especially in the youths of Nigeria, considering how the senatorial bye-elections panned out, after the traumatic events of the #EndSARS.
“However, the exit of Peter Obi from the PDP and his subsequent emergence as the Presidential candidate of the LP, and his brilliant choice of Mallam Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed as running mate have rekindled my hope.
“I am 54 years old, and never in my life have I been privileged to witness the kind of energy, vim, vigour, unity and tenacity of purpose being exhibited by youths of all ethnicities and religious backgrounds in Nigeria over a political candidate.
“I hereby publicly declare my resignation from the PDP and wish all the remaining members well.
“By the same token, I also hereby publicly declare my support for the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi,” Mr Gbadamosi said.
