Nigerian Vice President Yemi Osibanjo says he is no longer a member of the Lagos state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and by that freed himself from the reprimand of the chapter which is wholly given to the 2023 presidential ambition of the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Laolu Akande, Spokesman of Vice President Yemi Osibanjo, has said his boss is no longer a member of Lagos APC .
