The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ondo State has identified two party system as the best for the country’s democratic system.
Two party system, the party described as the best approach that would bring discipline , cohesion and ideology of substance to the nation’s democracy.
The State Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the party, Mr. Ade Adetimehin who stated this in an interview with The Hope said that the multiple political parties practice give room for defection as it is being experienced in the country.
According to him, the ruling APC with a strong opposition party would put the duo parties on their toes for effective impact on the lives of people.
He, however, noted that the level of defection within a month among politicians before the last year governorship election in the state brought about indecency in the political system of the country and pollution of political environment in the state.
Adetimehin described the defection to the APC as a good development for democracy, saying that defection should not be based on economic benefit and aim to occupy political position rather to add value to the party.
“Multiple parties give room for political harloting. People defected from the APC to the PDP and ZLP within a month. What is the gain thereafter.
“It will be shameful of someone who lost in a primary election of a party and moved to another party within a week and such person will not be taken serious. It is good to stay with the system and fight the system rather to defect.
“Anyone defecting for selfish ambition will not command respect but people can join political party to contribute their quotas.
“Politicians must think twice before deciding to defect to other party” he warned
He, therefore, challenged oppositions to rise to their responsibility by doing the needful, just as he noted that opposition was not restricted to political cycle alone and involves other professions and Non Governmental Organisation ( NGO ).
