Kogigist Blog reports that The All Progressives Congress (APC) welcomed back Sunday Ajayi, Chairman of the Lagos4Lagos Movement, and Segun Aka-Basorun, former Vice Chairman of the Kosofe Local Government Area, on Tuesday.
Kogi Gist recalls that the leaders of the group within the Lagos APC, which held parallel party congresses in 2021, defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in January.
Mr Ajayi, however, announced his withdrawal from the group on April 20, along with his followers, citing an alleged lack of democratic practices by the group’s Lead Visioner, Olajide Adediran.
On Tuesday, Cornelius Ojelabi, the Chairman of the APC in Lagos State, received the defectors at the party’s secretariat.
A statement by Lateef Ibirogba, Organising Secretary of the party in the South-West Zone, quoted Mr Ojelabi as recounting the contributions of the former aggrieved APC leaders to the party.
“I welcome you back to our fold. Welcome to our great party and congratulations for taking the right decision.
“As a progressive, we know it’s not likely for you to fit into the system of PDP,” Mr Ojelabi said.
Mr Ojelabi urged them to be upright and continue to contribute their quota to the development of the party.
According to him, together they all can take the party to greater heights.
Speaking on behalf of the returnees, Mr Ajayi, who noted that he and his followers were happy to return to the APC, promised to work with the party leadership to achieve greatness.
