Moyo, son of a former Minister of Works, Adeseye Ogunlewe, announced his resignation in a letter dated April 11, 2019, and addressed to the chairman of the PDP in the state.
The letter read in part, “I, Moyosore Ogunlewe, hereby resign my membership of the Peoples Democratic Party with immediate effect.
“I want to thank all my supporters and well-wishers across the state for the support and steadfastness. God bless you all.”
The politician who is in his 30s was one of the youngest candidates that contested the last elections in the state.
Moyo had contested in 2015 but lost by a slim margin to Bayo Osinowo of the All Progressives Congress who is now the senator-elect for Lagos-East.
