Lagos LP deputy governorship candidate quits party

Princess Islamiyat Oyefusi, the Labour Party (LP) deputy governorship candidate in Lagos State in 2023, has resigned her membership in the party.

 

Oyefusi confirmed her resignation to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Lagos.

 

She said she left the LP because the party’s values no longer aligned with hers.

 

Oyefusi, who contested alongside LP governorship candidate Mr. Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, however, said her resignation from the party was not to join the APC, PDP, or any other party at the moment.

 

She said she did not have to join any political party to impact lives, saying her focus at the moment was impacting lives across many communities in the state.

“Must I go anywhere? I am building my ambition. I don’t need to go anywhere to build my ambition.

 

“I have built myself up; we see how the future goes. Where I am moving is not in the pipeline at the moment.

 

“We are doing a lot of activities for Lagos residents all over the place at the moment. For instance, next Saturday, we have a very expanded medical outreach in Ikorodu.

“We have free mental and eye care services—two in one. We will give you free glasses and free drugs.

“We have a food bank going to the Oshodi-Isolo area next week.

“We have got so many programs, and we will continue to prove our worth to the communities so people know we are ready to serve them and support them even at this difficult time.

“This is our focus at the moment,” she added.
