- The PDP has lost one of its members, Hon Sulaimon Oyenuga, to the APC in Lagos state
- Oyenuga said with his exit, the PDP is dead for good
- Alhaji Ibrahim Alao Megida, an APC chieftain, assured Oyenuga that he was highly welcomed
Hon Sulaimon Oyenuga, a former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s top member in Lagos state, has joined the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Oyenuga dumped the party at at an award night organised by the Lagos state chapter of the Performing Musicians’ Association of Nigeria (PMAN) in collaboration with a Lagos Mainland APC chieftain, Alhaji Ibrahim Alao Megida.
The ex-PDP politician called on all Yorubas in other parties to defect to the APC because of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who according to him, is a great leader.
“With my exit from the PDP, I can assure you that the PDP is absolutely dead and dead for good. I, therefore, advised all Yoruba in that party to leave for the APC because the PDP, as a party, does not always consider the interest of Yoruba when it comes to matters of importance,” he said.
On his part, Megida said Oyenuga had held consultations with APC chieftains like Hon Monsuru Owolabi Alao, Hon Tunji Bello before his decision to defect.
He added that the PDP was gone for good with the exit of Oyenuga from the party.
Among those who formally welcomed Oyenuga into the ruling party were chairman of Yaba L.C.D.A, Hon Kayode Omiyale; Lagos APC youth leader, Hon H. O. Mohammed; LGA chairman of Mainland APC, Hon Abiodun Fagba, among others.
Meanwhile, there are rumuors that Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River might be on his way to the APC.
According to the report, the PDP governor might be defecting after the APC's governorship candidate in the state, Senator John Owan-Enoh dropped his intention to appeal against the recent judgement of the Cross River state governorship tribunal.
