He described the action of the National Chairman as illegal and unconstitutional.
The issue of the INEC recognition of Hakeem Dickson who had served a prison term of three years in United States of America give credence to the fact that the party could not have endorsed Dickson to represent the party at the 2023 governorship election in Lagos State.
