Ondo Deputy Governor Quits APC, Picks PDP Membership Card




Ondo Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi has resigned as a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) after months of battle with his head and present Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.

Agboola Ajayi resigned his membership of the All Progressive Congress (APC) at his country home in Kiribo, Ward 2, Apoi, in Ese-Odo Local Government Area of the state yesterday June 21, hours after he had an disagreement with Ondo state commissioner of Police, identified as Bolaji Salami. 

The Ondo Deputy Governor, who picked his membership card of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at his ward, said he is happy to be back to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after a long time out.

This new development follows the defection of the Edo state deputy governor, Philip Shaibu to the PDP from APC.

Speaking to journalists shortly after obtaining his PDP membership card at the party secretariat in Benin City, Shaibu expressed disappointment over the ”undemocratic actions and tendencies” of the suspended National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomole.

In his words:

“I have a mixed feeling with this action. First, one struggled to form a party and after forming that party, those that benefitted from the party took over the party and became tyrants. It is not always easy that after one helped to form and nurture a party, one individual would say he is an Adolf Hitler in the system and becomes undemocratic. That was what happened in the APC.”
