Prince-Olagunsoye-Oyinlola-TVCNews

Former Osun State governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola has written the APC NEC of his intention to leave the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Mr. Oyinlola communicated his decision to the leadership of the party through a letter received at the National Secretariat of the APC in Abuja on Wednesday.

It is understood that Oyinlola, alongside others would be floating a new political party soonest.

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo is said to be behind the new party.

The retired general recently emerged as the leader of the Coalition of Nigeria Movement (CNM) floated by Obasanjo.

Oyinlola was unceremoniously removed as the National Secretary of Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in 2013 and he later joined APC in 2014 in the count down to Osun gubernatorial election of August 9.

in 2017, President Buhari appointed him Chairman of National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) Board. It was seen by many as a pacification after the former military man lost out in the ministerial and ambassadorial appointments.

Mr. Oyinlola has also resigned from the same office.
