A member of the Oyo State House of Assembly representing Ibadan North II state constituency, Mr Olusegun Olaleye has make good his decision to dump the ruling APC and joining the People’s Democratic Party formally as he attends the party’s ward meeting.
Olaleye described the switch of allegiance as “a return to Canaan, the promised land”
The lawmaker, who had on June 28 disclosed his decision to dump the APC, said his decision was based on the “bastardisation of the ideals of Lam Adesina that he believed in, in the current APC in Oyo State.”
Speaking at the Ward 11, Ibadan North Local Government, where he was received by the PDP Chairman of the local government, Mr Seun Adelore, Olaleye said he went astray in the APC but was back to the party that will form the next government in the state.
According to Olaleye, the leader of the PDP in the state, Senator Rashidi Ladoja, held the “ark of governance in the 2019 election in the state”, describing the PDP as a moving train which boasted of huge followers across the state and good leaders like Senator Ladoja, Chief Sarafadeen Alli and Senator Femi Lanlehin.
He urged the people of the state, particularly the constituency to get their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) so as to greatly determine who rules them in 2019.
Other state lawmakers who accompanied Olaleye to the event include Messrs. Ademola Ige, Fatai Adesina and Niyi Adeoye.
Adelore, the party Chairman in the local government in his remark, declared that the PDP in the state was poised for huge victory at all levels of government, in the 2019 election. He described the PDP as a big and accommodating party that all residents of the state should belong.
The event was also witnessed by large supporters of the lawmaker who also decamped to the PDP with Olaleye.
