A founding member of the Peoples Democratic Party and former presidential aide, Titilayo Ajanaku, has quit the party to join the Peoples Democratic Movement in Ogun state.
Mrs. Ajanaku made the disclosure in Abeokuta on Friday to journalists at the Ogun State secretariat of her new party, shortly after the election of new executives.
She said the PDM, of which she is a founding member, was an offshoot of the PDP before the former was later registered as a political party with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
“What we found in PDP in the last few years is contrary to what PDP was formed on,” Mrs. Ajanaku stated. “Many undemocratic things going on,everybody just doing what he likes.”
She said her return to PDM was irreversible and to revive the party ahead of 2019.
She said the party was set to put smiles on the faces of Nigerians as structures would be established across the country in due course.
“This is a disciplined party and one family and my role is to ensure things work well,” Mrs. Ajanaku said.
She asked the newly elected executives to inject discipline to the party and follow its constitution strictly as well as attract more members.
