On the latest episode of Culture Custodian’s 4th Republic podcast, Funso Doherty, the new face of opposition politics in Lagos State talks to lawyer and journalist, Oluwamayowa Idowu on his journey and commitment to building a credible opposition in Lagos.

Doherty who sought the Lagos Governorship in the 2023 elections under the auspices of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) came into politics on the back of a successful career in finance. During their conversation, Doherty expands on his experience growing up on Wakeman Street in Yaba, getting an early taste of the leadership bug as a student, working at GTBank in its early days and his desire to act in the public interest through service by elected office in Nigeria.

4th Republic is a podcast of non-partisan leaning seeking to chart and contextualize the key actors and events that characterize the Nigerian political space post the 1999 return to democracy.
