Babatunde Gbadamosi, a outstanding member of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State, has joined the Labour Party and endorsed Peter Obi as its presidential candidate.
Gbadamosi, a former PDP senatorial candidate for Lagos East and former African Democratic Party governorship candidate, stated this in a remark on Friday, August 5.
“I had totally misplaced hope, particularly within the youths of Nigeria, making an allowance for how the senatorial bye-elections panned out, after the tense occasions 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.” He stated.
“I’m 54 years outdated, and by no means in my existence have I been privileged to witness the type of power, vim, vigour, cohesion and tenacity of objective being exhibited via youths of all ethnicities and non secular backgrounds in Nigeria over a politician.
“I hereby publicly claim my resignation from the PDP and want the entire closing participants neatly.
“By the same token, I also hereby publicly declare my support for the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi.”
He described how he become a faithful PDP supporter after becoming a member of the celebration in Ikorodu in 2008.
“I came to recognise 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.”
He claimed that Obi has confirmed to be a resourceful, smart, and economical administrator as neatly as a competent steward of public monies.
“These two proportion a zeal for training and wisdom, with Obi’s documented exploits within the training sector as governor of Anambra and Baba-Ahmed’s direct funding in training as Pro-Chancellor of the extremely revered Baze University, Abuja.
“Both proportion a disdain for graft and consider 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.” He stated.
