Numerous Ondo Defections from APC to PDP


Hundreds of members of the All Progressives Congress, which is now in power in the Ifedore Local Government Area of Ondo State, have defected to the PDP in the months leading up to the general election.

Leaders of the PDP in the local government and the state were there to meet the defectors at the defection, which took place on Monday at the PDP secretariat, Igbara-Oke, the centre of the council area.

The local government chairman of the PDP, Chief Dare Owolafe, welcomed the defectors and assured the new members of justice, fairness, and equity among PDP members. He also urged others to join the party, calling it a successful party, and he welcomed the new members.

"We are really glad to have APC members in our midst," he stated, "and we believe that it will strengthen the morale of our great party. It is a wonderful development."

As the dawn of a new era, the mass defection to the PDP was anticipated, according to the party's immediate past chairman, Mr. Clement Faboyede, "because we are all living in this country and we know how it is today."

We can all see that Nigeria is no longer at ease, he continued. Is it in the realm of education or security? Due to the ASUU strike, our sons and daughters have remained at home for the past six months; this is entirely the fault of poor leadership.

We cannot go on in this manner. The APC-led administration has failed miserably. We were aware of both the previous and current state of the nation when Goodluck Jonathan served as president.

"For this reason, we would not support the APC government in the general elections of 2023. Nigerians should vote to remove the APC from local to federal office. They have caused destruction and have failed horribly.

The programme aimed to honour "the defectors who have understood that the PDP is the only party that can rescue the country in the approaching general election," according to a PDP candidate for the House of Assembly in the Ifedore Constituency who also spoke at the event.

Ayodele claimed that the PDP had a better future than the current APC while speaking through one of his assistants, Michael Oladapo.

"Therefore, before switching from the APC to the PDP, I'll advise individuals who are considering it to compare and contrast. They ought to remain and keep succeeding because the future is brighter for our party, he said.
