Just In: Dapo Lam rejoins the ruling APC, revalidates membership


Three years after he left the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the African Democratic Congress, ADC, Hon. Adedapo Lam-Adesina has rejoined the party.

The defection, which was done amid jubilations by supporters at the Felele home of late Alhaji Lamidi Adesina, former governor of Oyo State, came weeks after leaders of the APC visited him.

Recalled that the youthful politician, together with other aggrieved members of the party, grouping under Unity Forum, has defected to ADC in June, 2018 owing to irreconcilable leadership tussle within the party.

Speaking at the enlarged meeting with supporters,  Lam-Adesina, who represented Ibadan North East/South East federal constituency between 2015 and 2019, said he needed to rejoin the party as a form of respect to party leaders and elders who had persuaded him to rejoin the progressive 

Adding that he had tabled his grievances to those who visited him and others who had promised to address it, the 42-year old politician said he was happy to be back home after what he called a ‘loan deal’ to ADC. This was just as he thanked the leadership for making the platform available when it was needed.

“I am happy to be back to APC. For me, it is a great homecoming. Like I have said, I have told our leaders who spoke to me let us address our problems once and for all,” he explained.
