APC Supporters Plan Mass Defection To PDP


Across section of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Kwara State are said to be praising speculated decisions of some stalwarts of the party to quit and join another party.

The spokesperson of the APC stalwarts, Mr Sunday Fasanmi, accompanied by  Mr Olabode Towoju and Mr Tunji Olawuyi made this known at a press briefing on Monday in Abuja.

He said the decision of the two party stalwarts to move to another party, specifically to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) was due to the shabby treatments they had been experiencing in the party.


Speaking on behalf of the supporters, Fasanmi said the ill treatment of the principal officers of APC in Kwara amounted to betrayal of trust.

The two APC party members Towoju and Olawuyi, contested for the House of Representatives in Irepodun, Isin, Oke-Ero and Ekiti Federal Constituency of Kwara at different times.

He said Towoju worked assiduously for the party in the state and at the federal level but was shot-changed when the party got into power saying; “and in spite of the ill treatment, Towoju was not perturbed’.’

He said the supporters were ready to move en mass if it would provide a viable platform for them to realise their ambition of serving the people.

He said Towoju had been very useful to the people of his constituency, particularly his community; hence the supporters would do all within their powers to make his dream come true.

Fasanmi said once their leaders give their followers a go ahead to pull out of APC into PDP, they would not hesitate stressing that APC had been unfair and lacking in its internal democracy Kwara State.

“We can no longer be onlookers while people who did little or nothing to help the APC keep running the affairs of the party,’’ he said.
