The Ogun State Chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on June 23, 2018, reLadi ceived into its fold over 2000 defectors from All Progressive Congress (APC), Social Democratic Party (SDP) and Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN) in Odogbolu Local Government.
The State’s Vice Chairman, Chief Ibikun Ojosipe who received the decampees on behalf of the State Chairman, Hon Sikirulai Ogundele, assured them of equal treatment. He enjoined them to uphold the constitution of the party and be committed to the activities and success of the party in 2019.
Also on hand to receive the decampees was Hon (Dr) Ladi Adebutu, frontline Ogun State 2019 gubernatorial hopeful. He assured the defectors of his resolve to dislodge APC from Oke Imosan in 2019 saying the untold hardship APC had brought to the people could no longer be accepted. “Enough is enough”, he said.
On their own part, the leaders of the groups of decampees, claimed that their decision to defect to PDP was due to their conviction that PDP was a party that had the interest of the people at heart. They described Hon Adebutu as a compassionate man with sincere agenda to develop Ogun State.
