The All Progressives Congress (APC),Ondo State chapter has dismissed the claim of a group which recently claimed to have dumped the party.
Recently, there was a rumour going around that a group has dumped the APC in the state for the Alliance for Democracy (AD)
The State Publicity Secretary of APC, Alex Kalejaye described the claim as spurious, mischievous and laughable.
He added that the leader of the group, Mr. Lanre Olurakinse, left the APC for the Alliance for Democracy in 2016, “shortly after the party’s governorship primaries and has since remained there”.
“The said group leader, Lanre Olurakinse, ceased to be a member of the APC in Idanre Local Government Area since 2016, when he defected to the Alliance for Democracy.
“I wonder if people still have regards for figures. A man that cannot influence three persons will suddenly claim to lead thousands”, Kalejaye said.
Kalejaiye said that APC is committed to its members’ wellbeing and development.
“Our focus is to ensure the inclusion of stakeholders in our strategic planning ahead of the next general elections”, he added.
He said most aspirants in the state have reiterated their resolve to work for the success of the party during the general elections, “contrary to the narrative that mass defection looms.”
He appealed to members to continue to show understanding and always put the interest of the party above immediate personal gains.
