LP’s Deputy-Governorship Candidate In Lagos, Islamiyat Oyefusi, Dumps Party

Islamiyat Oyefusi, the deputy governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Lagos, has resigned from the party.

This was as she expressed gratitude to Gbadebo Rhodes-vivour whom she deputised during the electioneering period.

In a statement annoucing her resignation Oyefusi revealed that her dream of freeing Lagos from a one party system still remains.

The statement read, “It has been a very interesting 10 months of my political career, I give thanks and glory to Almighty God for seeing me through in good health and with His mercy.

“My thanks to Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour for the political window as your deputy.

“At this juncture, I can no longer see myself aligning with the current values of Labour Party or as a member of Labour Party, and the time has come for me to move forward.

“I would like to express my deepest gratitude to my team and supporters across the length and breadth of Lagos State and Nigeria in general, who worked tremendously hard with me, despite the difficult terrain, on our achievements during the 2023 electioneering period, an achievement, we can all be highly proud of, and for the immense support of the ObiDatti family and NCF, It was indeed an honour and a privilege to take that journey with you all.

“I look forward to working with you all in the future towards achieving our dreams of freeing Lagos from one party politics, creating a Lagos that works for everyone, and a better/new Nigeria.

“Thank you all and God bless you all.”
