The Lagos state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it will accept the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in last week’s governorship election, Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran aka Jandor back to the party, if he is interested in returning.
Recall that Jandor left the APC for the PDP in January 2022 and came a distant third in the governorship election which was won by the incumbent, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Sanwo-Olu polled 762,134 votes, while his closest rival, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party got 312,329. Jandor had 62,449 votes.
Hon. Seye Oladejo, the Publicity Secretary of the APC in Lagos said the party warned Jandor not to embark on a failed mission as Lagosians will appreciate Governor Sanwo-Olu with their votes but he ignored the warning.
“Of course, we will welcome him back with open hands. We told him then to reconsider his move and return to the fold but he ignored the warning. Now that he has learnt his lesson in PDP, we will still open our doors to him if he finds his way back”.
” For us in Lagos APC, it is the more, the merrier. Our doors are opened to anyone who wants to join our great party and our performing Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu in consolidating on his ongoing projects and significantly advance the journey towards the Greater Lagos initiative”.
