Ex-Lagos Commissioner,AbdulHakeem AbdulLateef exits APC

Former Lagos Commissioner for Home Affairs Dr AbdulHakeem AbdulLateef has resigned from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In his Independence Day message, AbdulLateef said his decision was due to rejection of his movement by some “close leaders” he respected in the party.

The one-time lawmaker launched Iyepe 2023 on Tuesday, a movement to galvanise Lagosians to develop more interest in politics and curb voter’s apathy.

The action led to termination of his appointment as Special Adviser to Speaker Mudasiru Obasa on Religious Affairs.

AbdulLateef thanked Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who he described as a great leader who fought tenaciously for democracy.

“When I joined politics, he was there for me and assisted me greatly to occupy very enviable positions in the government. He has developed so many other individuals in very many capacities. May Allah reward you abundantly,” he said.

He also praised Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Speaker Mudasiru Obasa, other leaders of the party and the past Governors he worked with.
