Moshood Adegoke Salvador, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos state, has collapsed his political group, Conscience Forum, into the Labour Party (LP) in the state.
According to POLITICS NIGERIA, Salvador, one-time chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had last year conducted a parallel state congress which was not recognised by the APC leadership at the national level.
Since his efforts to become the APC flagbearer in respect of the 2023 election ended in futility, reports have emerged that he has been adopted as the governorship candidate for Labour Party in Lagos state.
Salvador had announced to his members the collapse of the Conscience Forum into the Labour Party as well as his ‘endorsement’ as the governorship candidate.
“I am delighted to inform you that conscience forum structure has been adopted by the Labour Party,” a statement by his media team said.
“This is the greatest opportunity to regain our political relevance, recognitions and benefits that was lost in APC.
“Also, Hon. Salvador is now the governorship candidate for Labour Party in Lagos state. The window of substitutions is also available for our members. If you’re interested in contesting for reps, assembly, or senate, office is opened at Salvador towers to meet the state chairman and complete your INEC form.”
A formal announcement is expected to be made soon.
