The Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Ali Olanusi, has defected from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party to the opposition All Progressives Congress.

Mr. Olanusi, who is said to have had a frosty relationship with Governor Olusegun Mimiko for sometime, crossed to the APC Thursday morning.

He is yet to make a formal announcement of his defection.

Mr. Olanusi, who ran with Mr. Mimiko on the platform of the Labour Party in 2007, became deputy governor in 2009 after the Court Appeal declared Mr. Mimiko winner of the disputed 2007 governorship election in the state.

He ran again with Mr. Mimiko on the platform of the same party in 2014.

In October 2014, the governor and his deputy defected to the PDP.

    No one takes notice of a bitter-leaf shrub beside an IROKO TREE.
    APC…A party of rejects..

    • Ikedinachi

  • citizenka

    Dear Mr Ali Olanusi whatever you do please do got asking for blood fight like Ikuru. Just take it easy and smile



  • Ikedinachi

    The funny thing is that traitor Mimiko has exhausted his credit. He has nowhere else to run to for he knows the game is up. He has burnt all his bridges and I know that nemesis will soon catch up with this professional betrayer who callously bit the finger that fed him. By Saturday, he will find out that treachery doesn’t pay.

    Please vote wisely. Vote “All Peoples Choice” on Saturday. Do away with division, insincerity in government, corruption, bad international reputation, austerity, oil theft, bribery, unemployment, and ethnic division. Use your PVC and follow the democracy of mission and vision for yourself, children and generations. Our hard earned democracy was not made through bribing traditional rulers or ethnic militias. Declare your freedom and independence.
    Time has come for Nigeria to reward the Public Disaster Party by voting them out of federal power. They have neglected the unemployed, the poor, the non militants, and the sick for 16 years. We have 1 day to neglect them on Saturday with our votes. Stop the Propaganda Distribution Party by rejecting saTAN and all his empty promises. The devils mission is to Pamper, Destroy and Pull down your future. They Promise, Deny, and Pollute the country with incompetence and mediocrity in leadership. God bless you.
