Media mogul and member of the board of trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Raymond Dokpesi has led a delegation of the party to the Ikeja secretariat of the Lagos4Lagos movement, an aggrieved group with the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos, lobbying the group to join the main opposition party.

The visit was in continuation of PDP’s consultation with critical stakeholders across Nigeria following its recent national convention, spokesman for the movement Kazeem Bakare said in a statement on Monday.

Dokpesi, according to the statement, met the lead visioner of Lagos4Lagos movement Olajide Adediran alias Jandor.

Dokpesi was quoted as saying that no political party should ignore “Jandor” as a brand.

In his response, Mr Adediran appreciated the delegation for believing in the “can do ability” of the movement.

The spokesman said that Adediran told the delegation that his group would take a critical look at their invitation, inform all Lagos4lagos structures across the 245 wards in the state and revert accordingly.

Division in Lagos APC took a new turn when several aggrieved groups within the party conducted parallel congresses during the ruling party’s ward, local government and state congresses.
