Defectors from a faction of the Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) were on Saturday received into the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) by a former President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki.

Saraki, who is the Chairman of PDP National Reconciliation Committee, met with hundreds of members of the Lagos4Lagos Movement, and its leader, Olajide Adediran, at an event organised in Lagos for the defection of the APC members to the opposition party.

It would be recalled that Adediran faction had in September 2021 held a parallel local government congress at different locations in the state.

The group had alleged impunity, imposition and marginalisation in the party for its action but the congress of the movement was not recognised by the Mai Mala Buni-led caretaker committee.

The Lagos4Lagos Movement had also been critical of the reign and stronghold of APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, saying no one has the right to impose governors and political office holders in the state.
