No fewer than three thousand former members of People Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara South have defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) during an inter-religion prayers organized by APC Kwara south Senatorial District in Ajasse-Ipo, Ifelodun Local Government Of Kwara State.
Kwara South APC which has members across Offa, Isin, Irepodun, Ifelodun, Oyun, Oke-ero and Ekiti local government turned out en masse in their solidarity to pray for the success of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.
Although, the Governor has not officially declared his intention to run for second term in office. Many Kwarans have been throwing support behind the Governor to run for second term due to his tremendous achievements in health, education, security, empowerment, employment, economy, infrastructure, sports among others. These giant strides prompted loyal member of former senate president, Bukola Saraki to drop the umbrella and pick up the broom.
One of the defectors, Kunle Kabiru said it is only an enemy of progress that would go against the developmental plans of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRahman and his achievements within a short period.
“We are tired of being slave to a dynasty that has caused artificial poverty and unnecessary hardship on us in Kwara south. We didn’t enjoy the dividends of democracy as we have now compared to when our brother (Abdulfatah Ahmed) was the Governor for eight years.” He said.
The event was attended by the Party Chairman, Mr Sunday Fagbemi, APC Kwara south exco, stakeholders, political office holders, appointees, party members, and supporters graced the event.
