The Lagos State Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources, Oluwo Olawale, has resigned.
Mr Oluwo announcement his resignation in a letter addressed to the APC Chairman in the state and sent to Channels Television on Wednesday.
He explained that he took the decision as a result of the events that played out at the party’s state primary held in October.
Oluwo alleged that the exercise was characterised by voter disenfranchisement, undue influence, violence, and intimidation to members among other activities that violate the electoral law.
He also claimed that the party lacked integrity, stressing that this has diminished the reputation of the state as a reference point for free and fair democratic practice.
Apart from resigning his position as a commissioner, he also announced his defection from the APC.
The APC leadership in the state has yet to respond to Oluwo’s allegations.
