Lagos PDP Stalwart Dumps Atiku, Joins Obi Movement


Babatunde Gbadamosi a Peoples Democratic Party stalwart in Lagos State has dumped PDP for Peter Obi’s Labour Party.  former Lagos East Senatorial Candidate of the PDP revealed a new move in a statement on Friday, August 5. He said: “I had completely lost hope, especially in the youths of Nigeria, considering how the senatorial bye-elections panned out, after the traumatic events of the EndSARS.

“However, the exit of Peter Obi from the PDP and his subsequent emergence as the Presidential candidate of the LP, and his brilliant choice of Mallam Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed as running mate have rekindled my hope. “I am 54 years old, and never in my life have I been privileged to witness the kind of energy, vim, vigor, unity, and tenacity of purpose being exhibited by youths of all ethnicities and religious backgrounds in Nigeria over a political candidate.

“I hereby publicly declare my resignation from the PDP and wish all the remaining members well.

“By the same token, I also hereby publicly declare my support for the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi.” Speaking on how he joined the PDP in Ikorodu, he said: “I came to recognize that the problems of PDP run quite deep, and their tepid opposition is in fact by the design of some individuals populating the party leadership from top to bottom.”

Gbadamosi revealed that the Obi-Datti ticket is a full package of gentlemen who love knowledge and have invested greatly in the education sector, who have shown themselves as trustworthy custodians of public funds.

He said: “These two share a passion for education and knowledge, with Obi’s documented exploits in the education sector as governor of Anambra and Baba-Ahmed’s direct investment in education as Pro-Chancellor of the highly respected Baze University, Abuja. “Both share a disdain for graft and believe in exterminating contract padding.

“I find myself left with no choice, when faced with the alternatives, but to publicly throw in my lot with these two fine gentlemen, especially considering that another good Uncle of mine, Dr. Doyin Okupe is one of the navigators of their journey and had invited me very much earlier.”
