FORMER PDP GOVERNORSHIP ASPIRANT IN LAGOS STATE DECAMPED TO APC

Saturday, September 1, 2018
A former governorship aspirant in Lagos State, under the platform of the People Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Michael Olawale Cole, has left the party for All Progressive Congress (APC). 

According to him, the impressive Performance of President Muhammadu Buhari and Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State instigated his decision to leave the PDP for the APC.
In an Interview with NAN On Saturday in Abuja, Mr. Cole confirmed that he had formally joined APC and registered at ward `A’ Onigbongbo, Ikeja, Lagos State.
He joined APC because of the transparency in governance and accountability of Buhari and Ambode.’’
“I have examined the way the country is going, and from my findings, it appears to me that supporting Buhari is the best choice we have at the moment.
“After being a member of PDP for years and running for the governorship ticket of the party in 2007 in Lagos state, it was evident that the APC is different.
“From what the president is doing in the fight against corruption and the issue of transparency in governance via Treasury Single a Account and others, he must be encouraged by men of goodwill.
“I have been in government before as a Commissioner for Finance and later for Works and Transport, Lagos State, we can see what the APC is doing differently, this government has a chance in the area of probity and transparency’’.
Olawale-Cole also said that “there are still some shady deals among government officials but once the leadership is upright, the followers will do the same.’’
According to him, the decision to pitch his tent with the APC took him two years, observing that the decision was taken after critical analyses of the situation of things in politics.
I find it difficult to find anyone with equal standing in integrity, honesty, and probity with Buhari.
“Of course, there are inadequacies, but with time, the president and his Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo will give us a better tomorrow and protecting our common wealth,’’he said.
