Lagos - There are indications that a former lead visioner of the Lagos4Lagos Movement, Olajide Adediran, aka Jandor, will officially join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday, January 11.
Jandor used to be a loyalist and influential ally of Babajide Fashola, a former Lagos governor, but was aggrieved over the conduct and results of the All Progressives Congress (APC)'s party’s ward, local, and state congresses and as such, dumped the ruling party in 2021.
Nigerian Tribune reports that during a special ceremony at Tafawa Balewa Square, Onikan, Lagos, Jandor who used to be an APC factional leader will be received into the PDP by Governor Seyi Makinde, some top PDP senators, and members of the House of Representatives.
The event will be hosted by Chief Olubode George, the leader of the PDP in Lagos.

Meanwhile, apparently dissatisfied with the treatment meted to the members of his group by the leadership of the AP in Lagos, the chairman of the Conscience forum of the party, Moshood Salvador, had sent a strong message to the national body ahead of the forthcoming state congress.
Speaking at a stakeholders’ meeting which had in attendance members of the forum from the 20 local government areas and 37 LCDAs of the state held on Monday, October 3, Salvador said the leadership of the party at the national level must be sincere with members of the party to win future elections.
