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

Oyefusi made this known in Lagos on Thursday, February 21, 2024.

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

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

She stressed that she doesn’t have to join any political party to impact lives, saying her focus at the moment was impacting lives across Lagos State.

The deputy governorship candidate said: “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 will 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. 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.”

Oyefusi, the daughter of the late Ayangburen of Ikorodu, Oba Salaudeen Oyefusi, vied for the Lagos East senatorial seat under the PDP in 2019.

She resigned her membership of the PDP in 2022.
