Barring any last minute change, a stalwart of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Lagos State, Moshood Salvador, will defect to the Labour Party.
A prominent member of Labour Party in the state, who pleaded anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter, revealed that Salvador would officially announce his defection soon.
The source said the former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) State Chairman was at the national headquarters of the Labour Party to officially notify the party of his interest in joining them.
According to the source, Salvador’s interest is to become the governorship candidate of the party in 2023.
He said: “Salvador has declared his intention to become our member and he has equally met the National Chairman of the party. I was among the delegation that went to Abuja to meet the chairman.
“Salvador said some party members approached him to come and lead the party in the state. He is welcomed into the party but some of us are opposed to him becoming our governorship candidate.
“We believed that he can’t work against Bola Tinubu’s structure in Lagos and we have also notified the National Chairman about this development. We have encouraged him to via for a senatorial seat,” the source said.
However, when contacted, Salvador said: “I think as journalists, you need to be patient for events to happen before you publish a news item. I don’t why you are asking this kind of question?” (Courtesy, excluding headline, New Telegraph)
