Mr Olawale Oluwo has resigned from the ruling All Progressives Congress in Lagos State over the conduct of the party governorship primaries.
The Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources in Lagos State, Mr Olawale Oluwo, has announced his resignation from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Mr Oluwo made the announcement in a resignation letter sent to Channels Television on Wednesday.
In the letter dated December 3 and addressed to the APC Chairman in the state, he explained that he took the decision as a result of the events played out at the party’s state primary held in October.
Oluwo alleged that the exercise was characterised by voter disenfranchisement, undue influence, violence, and intimidation to members among other activities that violate the electoral law.
He also claimed that the party lacked integrity, stressing that this has diminished the reputation of the state as a reference point for free and fair democratic practice.
The APC leadership in the state has yet to respond to Oluwo’s allegations.
