Lagos LP Guber Running Mate Oyefusi Resigns


The deputy gubernatorial candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 Lagos governorship election, Islamiyat Oyefusi has announced her decision to quit the party.

This was contained in a letter addressed to her ward chairman, titled: “Re: Resignation of membership from Labour Party”.

Stating that she could no longer see herself aligning with the current values of the Party as the time had come to move forward, Oyefusi thanked Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour for the opportunity of being his running mate in the last election.

The letter reads in part, “This letter is to hereby officially notify you of my resignation from the Labour Party.

“It has been a very interesting 10 months of my political career. I give thanks and glory to Almighty God for seeing me through in good health and with His mercy.

“My thanks to Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour for the political window as your deputy.

“At this juncture, I can no longer see myself aligning with the current values of the Labour Party or as a member of the Labour Party, and the time has come for me to move forward.

“I would like to express my deepest gratitude to my team and supporters across the length and breadth of Lagos State and Nigeria in general, who worked tremendously hard with me, despite the difficult terrain, on our achievements during the 2023 electioneering period, an achievement, we can all be highly proud of, and for the immense support of the ObiDatti family and NCF, It was indeed an honour and a privilege to take that journey with you all.
