Ogun APC lawmaker joins PDP

An All Progressives Congress, APC, lawmaker with the Ogun State House of Assembly, Adijat Adeleye-Oladapo, on Monday dumped the party to join Peoples Democratic Party, PDP ahead of the 2015 general elections.

The lawmaker representing Ifo II, state constituency said her decision was linked to “bad governance” by the state governor, Ibikunle Amosun.

She also announced her intention to contest for the Federal House of Representatives from Ifo/Ewekoro Federal constituency on the platform of PDP.

Mrs. Adeleye-Oladapo said her former party has failed to learn from the past failures of the PDP. She also noted that the state chapter of the ruling APC was fictionalised and has been embroiled in issues stemming from personal interests.

“The party is factionalised; we had two congresses. There is no respect for the party. It is just like what happened to the PDP in 2011 in the state, but, it is highly unfortunate that the leadership of APC did not learn from the PDP crisis,” she emphasised.
