Outgoing Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Lawmaker in the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Dipo Olorunrinu, representing Amuwo Odofin Constituency 1 defected to All Progressives Congress (APC). According to reports, he has been the only PDP lawmaker in the House of Assembly since July, 2017 until his defection, which happened after losing his re-election bid to the candidate of APC, Mrs Mojisola Alli- Macaulay in March 9 House of Assembly election.
It was also reported that he apologized for the late defection and stated that PDP is a party that lacks structure and lacks visions for Nigeria of tomorrow.
The Speaker of Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, welcomed Hon. Dipo Olorunrinu and commended him for his decision.
