Human rights lawyer Femi Falana (SAN) has replied to his party’s resignation of former Young Progressive Party presidential candidate, YPP, Kingsley Moghalu.
Moghalu’s resignation on his official Twitter handle was revealed on Monday.
He said he was told of his decision to quit partisan politics by calling for electoral reforms ahead of general elections in 2023.
He said “Our democracy will remain weak without electoral reform, which involves electronic voting. Before 2023, let’s repair this.
Reacting, however Falana accused Moghalu of resigning because he was given an appointment by the ruling party, APC.
Speaking at the 2019 Felabration symposium held at the NECA HOUSE, Lagos State, Falana was quoted as saying, “Is Dr. Moghalu still around? I think it is unfair to single out Dr. Moghalu for recognition.
“We should not celebrate opportunism. Here is a politician who contested on the platform of a party, who has moved conveniently to the APC.
“They’ve just given him an appointment and he has just discarded his own political party. I don’t think that is fair for all.”
