Last PDP Member In Lagos House of Assembly Defects To APC

Dipo Olorunrinu, the lone Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) member in the Lagos state house, has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Olorunrinu, who represented Amuwo-Odofin constituency I, lost his re-election bid to Mojisola Alli-Macaulay, APC candidate, in March 9 house of assembly election with just 278 votes.

He, however, vowed not to challenge the result at the election tribunal.

The lawmaker informed the house of his defection on Monday at the plenary through a letter titled: “Letter of Defection from PDP to APC,” and addressed to Mudashiru Obasa, the speaker.

The letter was read by Azeez Sanni, the clerk of the assembly.

“I have been a young progressive-minded person and I have decided to realign with the APC based on moving trend and party to reckon with taking Lagos State to the next level,” the letter read in part.

Recall that in 2015, there were eight PDP members in the house but seven defected.
