Abdul-Azeez Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, has been speaking on why he led his movement, Lagos4Lagos, out of All Progressives Congress (APC) to the main opposition in Nigeria, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

In note he sent to some of his followers on Sunday, Jandor said that his team is determined to end godfatherism in Lagos.

He said his team ” had to choose between subjecting our aspirations to make Lagos work for all, to the generality of Lagosians, as against subjecting it to the mood of an individual.”

Jandor’s Lagos4Lagos Moved To Homeless Party- APC Lagos

According to him, his team has been very lonely within the fold of APC since they joined.

” It’s been very lonely where we are coming from, despite enjoying a huge support base within the Leadership cadre of the APC…however, the said support base is invisible, and we know they will remain so for obvious reason. I know they feel much relieved now, with the possibility of us being on the ballot, a right we never enjoyed, and may not enjoy where we are coming from.” he said

Jandor said their official declaration and welcome will be done by the south west leader of the PDP, His Excellency, Engr. Oluseyi Makinde, the Governor of Oyo State.

A copy of the note is reproduced below:

Jandor wrote: I have read and heard divergent views over our decision to dump the APC for the PDP, and I can’t but appreciate all sides of the divide at least for considering us worthy of their precious time, discussing our position. It shows we are doing something, which is far better than doing nothing, we thank you sincerely.

Pending when we will be having our official declaration proper which will be led by no other person than the Leader of our Party in the Southwest, who is equally one of the National Leaders of PDP in Nigeria, His Excellency,Engr. Oluseyi Makinde, the Governor of Oyo State,I will like to reiterate here again, that we had to choose between subjecting our Aspirations to make Lagos work for all, to the generality of Lagosians, as against subjecting it to the mood of an individual.

With the PDP culture of conducting a primary election for real, we are ready to submit ourselves in a fair contest with all other interested members of the PDP who may also want to throw their hats in the ring.

It’s been very lonely where we are coming from, despite enjoying a huge support base within the Leadership cadre of the APC…however, the said support base is invisible, and we know they will remain so for obvious reason. I know they feel much relieved now, with the possibility of us being on the ballot, a right we never enjoyed, and may not enjoy where we are coming from.

I thank everyone who had to lent their voice either for, or against our move, and we respect your opinion.

Thank you all.

Jandor!
