Segun Adewale “Aeroland” dumps Lagos, PDP...to contest for Ekiti elections


The Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) Senatorial Candidate for Lagos West zone at the 2015 elections, Otunba Segun Adewale, report says has dumped the former ruling party, as well the state and would be contesting for the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Ekiti, his home state.
According to Prestige Magazine online, ‘Aeroland’ as he is fondly will now be contesting on platform of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), which has already announced him as their flagbearer.
Following this development, the PDP has decided to sanction the Ipoti-born businessman.
The Lagos State branch of Party has started the moves to place Adewale on indefinite suspension for anti-party activities, Prestige international magazine investigation reveals.
Prestige Magazine online gathered that the leadership of PDP in Lagos State is not happy with Segun Aeroland for dumping PDP and working against the party in Ekiti State towards the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state.
Segun Adewale ran for the Lagos State House Of Assembly on the Labour Party ticket, but his name was removed from the ballot paper just before the election.
He defected from the Labour party to the Alliance for Democracy for some months before defecting to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2011 and ran for the Federal House of Representative, Alimosho Federal Constituency, but lost the election to Solomon Adeola of the Action Congress of Nigeria, whom commentator say is his nemesis.
The outcome was replicated in 2015, when both candidates contested for the Senate.
