Some former of the All Progressive Grand Alliance () who crossed to the All Progressive (APC) on threatened to switch their allegiance to another party.

The different wards in Lagos told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) they had been marginalised since they joined APC on Nov. 5, 2013.

They called on the national leaders of APC to urgently wade into the matter or they would decamp to a party where they would be accepted.

Mr Akinola Sowale, the former Chairman, Itire-Ikate Local Council Development Area (LCDA), alleged they were left out in the and the just-concluded Ward and Local Government congresses.

“During the , we were carried along is why I am calling on the elders to help us.

“What we are demanding is just our right. We sent in our petition the chairman and we are shocked to know that we are still excluded APC activities,” he said.

In the same vein, Mr Nathaniel Chika, Chairperson in Isolo LCDA, appealed to the elders of APC to intervene in the matter.

“As you know we are in our thousands in Lagos State, we are the people that have the structure, if nothing is done, we will waste time to move to another .

“We have so many options available to at this time,” he said.

Also, Mrs Odeusi Sodiq, a leader in Oto-Awori LCDA, said the former of APGA who crossed to APC in the area were being sidelined in the scheme of things.

The protesters also alleged that Prince Olayokun Adesina, the former APGA chairman in Lagos, had abandoned the members to their fate while he enjoyed recognition in the APC.

When contacted by NAN, Adesina categorically denied that he had been given a position of prominence in the APC.

He added that the allegations being levelled against him were spurious and unfounded.

“No position has been allotted to me in APC neither did I receive money any of them,’’ he added. (NAN)
