The three Senators representing the entire Ogun state have defected from the All Progressives Congress, APC, to the Social Democratic Party, SDP.
This was revealed by one of the Senators, Gbenga Kaka, at a press briefing in the National Assembly on Wednesday.
The three lawmakers are: Mr. Kaka, representing Ogun East, Odunsi Akin, representing Ogun West and Gbenga Obadara representing Ogun Central.
Mr. Kaka said “This is formerly to inform you and the general public that we, the three senators, Adegbenga Kaka, Akin Odunsi and Gbenga Obadara representing the entire Ogun state, have just delivered our letters to the leadership of the senate, notifying him of our resignation from APC and declaring for SDP.
“This was consequent upon the factionalisation in the party (APC in Ogun state) leading to the emergence of parallel executives from ward, LGA to state level.
“All our protest, appeal and demand for justice from the national leadership yielded no result. Rather, the faction that flagrantly flouted the party guidelines was given recognition by the national executive.
“We subsequently did not partake in the National Convention, as we rightly believe in the legal aphorism that you cannot build something on nothing and expect it to stand.
“We are therefore left with no option than to withdraw our membership from APC, after due consultations with our constituents”.
The speech was signed by the three Lawmakers representing Ogun state.
