Lagos state commissioner for energy and mineral resources, Wale Oluwo, has dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) and as moved to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
He was said to have perfected is defection on Tuesday as he also left the cabinet of Governor Akinwumi Ambode.
Wale Oluwo said he had to resign his position and move to another party because of the way and manner Governor Akinwumi Ambode was treated despite his fine effort to change the face of Lagos.
He also added that it was Babajide Sanwo-Olu emerged flag bearer of the party through an undemocratic process.
The People’s Democratic Party, PDP in reaction to Wasiu Oluwo’s defection welcomed him and said through Taofik Gani the Publicity Secretary of the party in the state that he would be remembered for his bold action.
Taofik Gani said: “He has taken a political step never to be regretted. We encourage all remaining true democrats to join the PDP now. Lagos has been in bondage of a unipolar rule and control
“Indeed, with all that can be conceded to Ambode as due performances, he was denied a second term on the selfish, flimsy, vindictive excuse that he refused to fund the APC chieftains. Our emphasis here is that the APC is desperately holding onto Lagos State to enrich the chieftains directly or by bogus contracts awarded.
“We call on the Lagos electorate to join this revolution to free Lagos. We stand on our honour and before God to pledge that Lagos internally generated revenue shall be wholesomely spent for Lagos.”
