Kwara State PDP Chairman and other Members defect to APC
Members of the People’s Democratic Party in Kwara state, led by its Chairman, Mr. Iyiola Oyedepo have defected to the All Progressive Congress (APC).
This was made known by the former Publicity Secretary of the party to News Agency of Nigeria in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital.
The statement said:
“I hereby officially announce the exit of our members from PDP to APC.”
Oyedepo said he met with the leadership of the Party in Abuja and explained to them why the members were changing parties.
“Saraki and his cronies have been in the saddle of leadership of the state in the past 15 years with nothing to show for it.”
Oyedepo also met with the leadership of the APC, including Chairman, Adams Oshiomole and Minister for Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who he said welcomed them to the party.
“Unity is the primary ingredient that can make those of us coming from the PDP and leftover of APC members to live in harmony.”
He also enjoined the defecting members to maintain peace and orderliness in their conduct and behavior.
