Real reason Lagos commissioner resigned from Ambode’s cabinet – APC


The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has accused Mr. Olawale Oluwo, who resigned his appointment as the state commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources of being a mole in the ruling party.

Oluwo equally defected from APC to the opposition, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

In a statement released by the party Publicity Secretary, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, it said Oluwo was an ally of former lawmaker, Senator Tokunbo Afikuyomi, and had gone with Afikuyomi when the latter dumped the party to pursue his failed governorship bid in 2007.

It said the ex-commissioner followed Afikuyomi back to the party, and were both given appointments under the then Governor, Babatunde Fashola (SAN) while he was appointed a commissioner under the current dispensation of Gov. Ambode.

The statement read in part, “Oluwo had hardly resumed as the commissioner when he began his plot to use that office to advance his quest for political fiefdom. The object of his ambition was the positioning of his wife as the chairman of a local government.

“However, alert party men and women raised the alarm about his anti-party antecedents wondering why someone who recently joined the party would want to use his position as commissioner to impose his wife on the constituency.”
