September 25, (THEWILL) – Kayode Salako, Chairman of Labour Party in Lagos State and husband of Nollywood actress, Foluke Daramola, has been accused by a support group known as the Peter Obi Grassroots Mobilisation 2023 of working against the party. He was accused of secretly working for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The group accused Salako of planning to defect to APC, the party he belonged to before joining the Labour party. It also alleged that he had been working for the party underground.
The group pointed to the fact that Salako’s wife, Foluke, is close to Tinubu and has been drumming up support for him since 2021. She has been singing his praises and accused of collecting money in order to endorse him.
The group further alleged that Salako’s in-law works directly and feeds from Tinubu’s milk of kindness, hence, they cannot totally trust Salako’s work or loyalty to the Labour party. It was alleged that he would not neglect his family while pledging allegiance to the party.
The group called for his immediate removal as the chairman of the Labour party and subsequent expulsion from the party.
