Alhaji Abdul Azeez Olajide Adediran, better known as Jandor, a governorship aspirant in Lagos State, decamped from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Saturday (PDP).
Jandor is the founder of the Lagos4Lagos movement, which he founded to further his political ambitions in the APC in Lagos State. Also Read This: Ex-Sokoto gov, Bafarawa retires from politics
At a political gathering, the media mogul was photographed with Bukola Saraki, a presidential candidate for 2023. It’s official… he wrote on his well-known Facebook page. It’s past time for the people to reclaim power. We’ve relocated…now is the right moment.”
Jandor has visited with some PDP stalwarts in recent days, according to KOGI STATE NEWS, including Raymond Dokpesi.
When numerous ‘aggrieved’ groups within the Lagos APC held parallel congresses during the ruling party’s ward, local government, and state congresses in October, the party’s conflict took a new turn.
Jandor had said he is challenging the status quo in Lagos because he has the desire to emancipate the state.
“You know some of us do not believe in stereotype or status quo. We want to look at what is in that left that people are turning from, and if you are determined about something it is enough to achieve a whole lot. If you look at what is happening in Lagos, it is unfortunate that everybody just feels comfortable. When I say everybody; I mean including the poor and the rich. The one you can call their friends and enemies,” he had told BusinessDay in August.
