CHAIRMAN OF PDP, MOSHOOD SALVADOR, DEFECTS TO APC


The Lagos State Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Moshood Salvador, has dumped the party for the All Progressives Congress (APC).


He said his exit marks the end of PDP in the state.

Mr Salvador announced his defection on Monday while addressing his supporters in Lagos.

He said he took the decision because all his efforts to move the PDP in the state forward had been frustrated by some elements in the party.

Mr Salvador alleged that a former deputy national of the party, Olabode George, had done everything possible to undermine the progress of the party in the state.

He said he could no longer labour in vain, adding that the national leadership of the party had done nothing to support or appreciate his efforts as PDP Chairman.

“When you have people or leadership that cannot give you encouragement to carry out your vision, you take it to another place where it will be appreciated. I am not happy that I am abandoning what I laboured for, but I have to move on with my supporters because I cannot continue to labour in vain.


“Today, the chairman of PDP Board of Trustees called me on the defection and I told him to allow me consult with my people before feedback.The PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus also called me for the first time since my travails.

“He never called since I was put in jail on a cooked up murder charge; he called me today to ask why I want to defect.And I told him it is not possible for me to be in the same party with Bode George because he undermined all my efforts to reposition the party.

 “He was doing all these things and the national leadership was allowing him, saying he is an elder. Bode George also cooked up things to put me in jail in the murder case of late Aborishade. 

“Enough is enough. I am leaving the party with my supporters and I am taking them to APC where they would be recognised and appreciate.”

Salvador said he had since handed over the PDP structure to his deputy who would continue the affairs of the party.

He said his exit meant that the PDP was dead in Lagos as he was moving with about 15,000 supporters, including party executive members at council and ward levels.
