Eight Ekiti PDP Exco members to join APC

24 July 2015, 15:08

Ado Ekiti - Eight executive members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State are set to join the All Progressives Congress (APC), reports Punch.

Former Speaker of the House of Assembly, Olufemi Bamisile disclosed this on Thursday at a meeting with APC members in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.

Bamisile said the decision of the PDP exco members was part of his efforts to weaken the ruling party in the state and strengthen the opposition ahead of the 2018 governorship election.

The ex-Speaker, who was the state PDP vice-chairman before he joined the APC in 2014, said the eight PDP chieftains were decamping to the APC because they were disillusioned with the way the state was governed by Governor Ayo Fayose.

Bamisile noted that many PDP members who laboured to nurture the party when the governor defected to the Labour Party (LP) and supported Fayose on his return have been sidelined.
