Dominic Adegbola, Peoples Democratic Party Chairman in Lagos state has described former minister of works, Adeseye Ogunlewe’s reasons for dumping the PDP for the ruling All Progressives Congress as a good riddance to bad rubbish .
He, however, described the former minister as a double agent, saying his exit will not affect the fortunes of the PDP in Lagos state.
Dr Adegbola Dominic in a chat with reporters in Lagos at the weekend, said the party had evidence that even while claiming to be a PDP leader, Ogunlewe has been collecting money from APC leaders to work against the interest of PDP in the state.
Dominic said: “His exit to the APC will affect the fortunes of our party positively because he has been one of the major problems of the party. If he wants to join APC, he should go but he should stop spreading lies about the leadership of our party. For him to say I instructed party members to vote for another political party in the last election is a total lie and mischievous.
“I have debunked this nonsense on about two occasions. There is no evidence to back up that claim. I spoke at the open meeting we had where Jimi Agbaje made the allegation. He (Ogunlewe) said he has evidence and I asked him to show me the evidence but up till now, he has not provided any evidence.
