“My over seventeen years unflinching loyalty and passion, as well as the passion of overwhelming majority of the good people of my constituency for the party is dead.
” I’m therefore very pleased to inform you that I have decided to agree with my people in pitching my tent with the All Progressives Congress (APC), in continuation of my political journey.It will be recalled that The Politico had last Saturday reported the massive defection that is set to hit the PDP in Ondo State.
