PDP Chairman , Ward A1
Lagos Island Local Government.
Time to move on
I have served PDP for more than 17 years with selflessness, with determined resolve and dedication to party and leadership. I never once canvassed for any position or influence.
I did my duty with forbearance and with resolute sincerity without complaint, without a grudge, without pecuniary hovering, without gains.
For years, I slaved in the dark hours fruitlessly hoping for the bright days. It never happened.
I endured the slings of envy and the arrows of animadversion. I braved the cruel idiocy of little men and the crude purveyors of conspiracies with courageous mantle of God’s holy light.
I spent millions of my personal fortunes to enhance and strengthen the viability of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State and I equally wrote hundreds of innumerable speeches and articles with vigorous public articulations.
In the process, I made a thousand and more enemies and basically endangered my life and that of my family members simply because of my devotion to what I perceived to be the truth and the sacredness of the prevalent order.
I even lost my immediate junior brother, Prince Muis Adediran Shodipe-Dosunmu, who was then the State Secretary, amid the terrible hours of fate. Yet, I kept the faith. I held my rudder true. I shouldered the crucibles of life with quiet, uncomplaining solitude.
But all beginnings must have an end. I have served my course in PDP. My story is told. My journey is made. Now beckons a new journey.
I must now part ways. I must now move to the other isle where merit is valued, where hardwork and ethical centrality are given a hearing, where excellence is cultivated with doting restlessness by the embrace of a pan – Nigerian leadership.
At this moment and time, at this hour and instant, I, therefore, tender my irrevocable resignation as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Oòṣa b’oo ba le gbemi, ṣe mi bo ṣe bami.
It is well in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
