- Olaifa Jimoh Aremu has officially joined the ruling APC
- This was contained in a letter read by the speaker of the House of Representatives
- The lawmaker said joining the APC will be beneficial for his people
Hon. Olaifa Jimoh Aremu (OJA), House of Representatives member representing Egbado North/Imeko-Afon Federal Constituency has formally defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
This was contained in a letter read on the House floor by speaker Femi Gbajabiamila on Wednesday, March 17.
He was quoted to have said:
“I'll rather join the APC that will have my people benefit from the dividend of democracy."
Prior to this, he was a member of the African Democratic Congress (ADC).
Sosanwo who was the PDP's senatorial candidate for Ogun East in 2019 said he decided to join the ruling APC so as to work with Governor Dapo Abiodun in moving Ogun state further on the path of progress.
Legit.ng gathered that the former PDP chieftain has picked up his APC registration card at Ward 3, Sagamu.
Also, Taiwo Adisa, the chief press secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state, has alleged that the APC is plotting to lure his principal to the party.
Adisa claimed the leaders of the ruling party were aware that they could not raise any candidate that can match Makinde and that is the reason they want to lure him by all means.
However, Adisa, who made this known in a statement on Monday, March 8, said that the plot to lure Makinde to the party did not come as a surprise, claiming that the APC was fascinated by the governor’s achievements despite the challenges present.
