Lagos LP deputy governorship candidate, Princess Islamiyat quits party

Princess Islamiyat Oyefusi, Labour Party (LP) deputy governorship candidate in Lagos State in the 2023 general election, has resigned her membership of the party.

She confirmed her resignation to newsmen on Thursday in Lagos.

She said she left the LP because the party’s values no longer align with hers.

Oyefusi, who contested alongside LP governorship candidate, Mr. Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, however, said her resignation from the party was not to join All Progressives Congress (APC), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) or any other party.

She said she did not have to join any political party to impact lives, adding that her focus at the moment was impacting lives across many communities in the state.

“Must I go anywhere? I am building my ambition. I don’t need to go anywhere to build my ambition.

“I have built myself up, we see how the future goes. Where I am moving to is not in the pipeline at the moment.

“We are doing a lot of activities for Lagos residents all over the place at the moment. For instance, next Saturday, we have a very expanded medical outreach in Ikorodu.

“We have free mental and eye care services, : two in one. We will give free glasses and free drugs.

“We have a food bank going to Oshodi-Isolo area next week.

“We have got so many programmes and we will continue to prove our worth to the communities for people to know we are ready to serve them and support them even at this difficult time.

“This is our focus at the moment,” she told Journalists.

Oyefusi, daughter of the late Ayangburen of Ikorodu, Oba Salaudeen Oyefusi, also ran as the 2019 Lagos East Senatorial aspirant of the PDP.

She resigned her membership of the PDP in 2022.
