Olufemi Lanlehin, candidate of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, in last year’s governorship election has said that he remains a member of the party.
However, the former senator in a statement made available to OYOINSIGHT.COM, said he would consult with his people if at all he would associate with any other political parties or groups, “especially given the fluid nature of Nigeria’s politics.”
LANLEHIN REMAINS IN ADC
Events of the last 12 hours, wherein fellow compatriots in the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Oyo State Chapter, have elected to defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has necessitated that Senator Olufemi Lanlehin (SOLAN), clears the air, particularly to defray all rumours and innuendos, as well as assuage the feelings of fellow stakeholders, numerous supporters, loyalists and well-wishers across the state who need to know his position;
The fact remains that while the Distinguished Senator and governorship candidate of the ADC in the 2019 Election does not begrudge the defectors, believing it is a demonstration of their civic rights, he reiterates for the umpteenth time that he remains a loyal and committed member of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), totally sold out to the ideals, philosophies and policies of progressivism, a path he’s been towing ever since;
While not ruling out associations with other political parties, groups or camps in the near future, especially given the fluid nature of Nigeria’s politics, SOLAN wishes to add that should such situation arise, he will do so in consensus with fellow stakeholders and teeming backers across Oyo State, and in fidelity to his conscientious brand of progressive politics.
