Their movement into APC was facilitated by the National Coordinator of the South West Agenda For Asiwaju Tinubu (SWAGA) 2023, Dayo Adeyeye and other members of the group
While speaking at the programme, Omotosho, said leaders of Labour Party decided to quit the party because it is not viable and lacks the clout to win the 2023 elections.
