A national leader of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Chief Femi Majekodunmi, has expressed confidence of the party's victory in the 2019 general elections, saying that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) would lose to his party.
Punch reports that the ADC chieftain stated this during his declaration for Ogun Central senatorial seat.
Legit.ng gathers that Majekodunmi stated that the APC is getting weak as its members in the state have continued to defect to other parties, including the ADC.
He stated that he would defeat any candidate on the platform of the APC who might contest against him.
The ADC chieftain said: “The fortune of the APC and the PDP had continued to wane, as their members in the state continue to defect to other political parties including our own party, almost on a daily basis. In fact, it will be worse in the next few weeks.
“As a result of this, the APC will suffer defeat in the 2019 elections. Let the party bring any candidate to contest against me in the senatorial race for Ogun Central, I will defeat the candidate."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that former speaker, Ogun House of Assembly, Titilayo Oseni-Gomez, defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the African Democratic Congress (ADC).
Oseni-Gomez made this known at a news conference in Abeokuta on Thursday, August 30. She said she took the decision to enable her contest for the Ogun Central senatorial district in the 2019 general elections, on the platform of the ADC.
Oseni-Gomez ventured into partisan politics in 1999 and was elected as the first female speaker of the Ogun Assembly in June 2013.
