Barrister Moyosore Ogunlewe is an household in Kosofe, who won his party primaries for two consecutive times before when he set out to represent Kosofe constituency 1, at the Lagos State House of Assembly, in 2015 and 2019.
His ambition was truncated on two occasions during general elections by the highly sophisticated political machinery’s of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kosofe.
After suffering the second defeat, Moyosore embraced the catchphrase” If you can’t defeat them, arrange for them to be defeated you better join them” this and unbated internal crisis in his former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) prompted him to resign his membership from the party alongside hundreds of his supporters.
These developments made several stakeholders to believe that such defection will earn him some appointments under Gov. Babajide Olushola Sanwoolu, led administration but his supporters were disappointed because their principal was not considered.
What Lagos state is to the Federal Government that’s what Kosofe local government is to all the local council development areas under it

Our toplight sources disclosed that haven missed the MDAs appointments made so far, neccessiated Moyo lobbying the National Assembly lawmaker representing Lagos East , Sen. Adebayo Osinowo towards achieving his purported redefined position he once rejected in 2017 in his former party, when he was offered to consolidate on his 2015 outstanding performance, where Pepper narrow defeated him with less than 90 votes in the general elections.
It won’t be surprising seeing Moyosore joining the Kosofe council race if the likes of Mayor Dele Osinowo approach to governance has been repeatedly lauded by residents and opposition party’s. Going to three years in office we are yet to see where the major opposition party’s criticized him. Therefore, On Moyo, say what? say what ? Anything can happen in 2021.
