Eight days after he submitted a letter indicating his resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a former Director-General (DG) of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) and founding member of Lagos State chapter of the party, Ade Dosunmu, has rejoined the opposition party.
BELLNEWS recalls that Dosunmu left the PDP for the Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) after the Governorship primaries.
Dosunmu in his resignation letter dated May 26, a copy sent to the Chairman of Ward ‘B’ Apapa Local Government Area (LGA), Lagos State, had said his decision to leave the party after spending 23 years was because his ideas no longer align with what obtains in the party.
In his statement about joining a new party, Dosunmu stated: “I write to inform the general public, my political associates and friends, that I am moving to New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).”
However, in a fresh update on Thursday, the Lagos State governorship flag bearer of the PDP in the 2023 election, Azeez Olajide Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, said Dosunmu is back.
“Earlier today, I visited Dr. Ade Dosumu,who after the Governorship primaries decided to dump the party for NNPP.
“After our meeting, Dr. Ade Dosumu rescinded his decision and immediately returned to the PDP,” Jandor wrote on his known Facebook page.
