Osogbo - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said Tuesday’s defection of Osun governor, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, to All Peoples Congress (APC) would not affect outcome of Saturday’s governorship election in the state.
The Chairman of the party in the state, Gani OlaOluwa, stated this in a statement on Tuesday in Osogbo.
Describing the defection as "inglorious", Olaoluwa said that there was the need to pray for Oyinlola as he begins a political journey with professional liars.’’

"We respect the decision of Oyinlola, but we are also expecting him to be man enough to send a congratulatory message to us after the August 9 election.
"For the PDP in Osun, we are resolute and stand as a family to rescue our people from political vultures and voodoo personalities,’’ he said.
Oyinlola had, at a rally of the APC held in Osogbo on Tuesday ahead of Saturday’s election, formally pitched tent with the party.
