    Legislative Issues,, Ex Ministers Son abandons Father, dumps PDP in Lagos

    Moyo, a legal advisor, challenged on the stage of the PDP to speak to Kosofe 1 Constituency in the Lagos State Assembly amid the simply closed general race.

    He credited his renunciation from the PDP to the disappointment of the administration of the resistance to deal with the emergency that had now overwhelmed the gathering since the 2019 general decision.


    He declared his renunciation in a pithy letter on Thursday, routed to the Chairman of the PDP in the state.

    His letter understands, "I, Moyosore Ogunlewe, thus leave my enrollment from the Peoples Democratic Party with quick impact," read a piece of the letter.

    "I need to thank every one of my supporters and well-wishers over the state for the help and immovability. God favor all of you."
