Former deputy governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Lagos State Islamiyat Oyefusi has announced her exit from the party.

Oyefusi was Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour’s running mate in the 2023 governorship election won by the incumbent Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

In a letter dated February 22, 2024, and addressed to the party’s chairman in Isele 1 ward of Ikorodu, Oyefusi said the party’s values no longer align with hers.

Her letter read, “I can no longer see myself aligning with the current values of the Labour Party or as a member of the Labour Party, and the time has come for me to move forward. This letter is to hereby officially notify you of my resignation from the Labour Party.

“It has been a very interesting 10 months of my political career. I express gratitude to Almighty God for seeing me through in good health and with His mercy.

“I would like to express my deepest gratitude to my team and supporters across the length and breadth of Lagos State and Nigeria in general, who worked tremendously hard with me, despite the difficult terrain, on our achievements during the 2023 electioneering period, an achievement, we can all be highly proud of, and for the immense support of the ObiDatti family and NCF, It was indeed an honour and a privilege to take that journey with you all.”

Oyefusi was a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) before joining LP.
