Kayode Salako has resigned as the chairman of the Lagos state chapter of the Labour Party.
Salako handed the helm of affairs to Mrs Dayo Ekong who becomes the new chairman of the Labour Party in Lagos state on Tuesday, January 10, 2022.
According to reports, Salako resigned due to elevation to the position of the special adviser on Lagos Affairs and Liaison operations to the national chairman of Labour Party, Julius Abure.
In his resignation note, Salako said: I can’t be a mole in a political party I am contesting. I am so grateful that Labour Party made me not APC for the many many years I was with them.
“When I wanted to go, Labour Party said I can’t go and they elevated me. I am a sincere human being. I don’t deceive and I don’t cheat.
“It is where I am going that I am going. I came to the party to look for how it can be better for me.”
He further stated that he cannot continue to be the chairman of the party due to the fact that he is also running for political office in the forthcoming election.
Salako stated that the structure of the party remains paramount and he would not alter it at the expense of his own ambition.
The Labour Party chieftain said: “I have to hand over. This is the structure we have built for months. The greatest asset any politician can have is the structure.”
