PDP Chairman in Ondo dumps Party with 5,000 members to APC

January 28, 2015 7:52 am

Since Governor Olusegun Mimiko joined the and took over the
structure of the party in Ondo State, the party has been suffering some
major loses and the negative tide has even gone a step higher.

Barely 24 hours to the visit of President Goodluck Jonathan to Ondo
State, a former chairman of the PDP in the state, Chief Sanya Orungbemi,
and 5,000 others from the Akoko North East local government area of the
state yesterday defected to the All Progressives Congress ().

The leader of the defectors and former senatorial aspirant, Mr Jide
Ipinsagba, said at a press conference in Ikare-Akoko, that they decided
to dump PDP because of the injustice in the party.

He said: “We leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party and Labour Party in
Akoko North East Local Government Area and over 5000 teeming supporters
are moving from a deadly party to a progressive party.”

He lamented the rate at which people were moving out of PDP since Governor Mimiko joined the party in October last year.
Mr. Ipinsagba stated that old members of the PDP in the state are no
longer allowed to have any say in the affairs of the party except what
the governor imposes on them.

“We are leaving PDP to for APC to restore the glory and ensure the
development of our area and our people. Not only the people of Akoko are
tired of the current trends in Ondo state and at large but
every right thinking person.”

The defectors were received into the APC by its state chairman, Hon. Isaac Kekemeke and other leaders.
