PDP members defect to APC in Osun

By Fisayo Akinduro, Osogbo


The Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has suffered a setback with the dumping of the party by hundreds of members of the party for the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) at Ile-Ogbo in Ayedire Local Government Council area of the state.
The PDP decampees who were publicly welcomed into the party by the State APC Caretaker Chairman, Prince Gboyega Famodun, during the inauguration of Oyetola Solidarity Forum(OSF), Ayedire Local Government chapter held at Methodist Primary School, Ile-Ogbo, Osun State, commended their courage for identifying with the winning party.
Famodun promised the new members of the party that they would not be discriminated against in all circumstances, tasking them to join the existing APC team in order to ensure the re-election of Governor Oyetola.
In the state party chairman’s words: “You are welcome into our party in the name of God, in the name of Governor Oyetola and in the name of the leadership of our party in Abuja.
“I am assuring you that the joy and happiness that you are witnessing that prompted you to join this our great party shall be permanent in Jesus Name.
“You are not making a mistake by joining our party. In fact, this is where God is. Is it the party that was voted out over ten years ago that will know how to take care of you? You are in a safe hand”, Famodun stated.
The state APC chairman later commissioned three 18-seater buses and one Toyota Corrola car donated to the APC wing in the local government by Mr. Adeleke Olanrewaju, who hails from Ile-Ogbo.
Also on the occasion, the Olu of Ile-ogbo Kingdom, Oba Abeeb Adetoyese Agbaje, who led the other traditional rulers in the local government to the event, disclosed that all the traditional rulers in the local government were in support of the re-election of Governor Oyetola.
The royal father said: “All the obas in our local government are working assiduously and conscientiously for the re-election of Governor Oyetola as he is indeed a God-chosen leader who has the love of all at heart.”
