Ado Ekiti - Former board member of the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA), Remi Fadipe and key members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Fadipe joined the APC in her Are Ekiti Ward in Irepodun/Ifelodun Local Government Area along with about 60 of her supporters.
Fadipe said she quit the PDP because of alleged injustice, dictatorial tendencies and failure of Governor Ayo Fayose to carry everybody along in party and governmental affairs.

She expressed regrets that key PDP leaders in all parts of the state are leaving the state ruling party in droves over Fayose’s leadership style which, according to her, has rendered the party unpopular in Ekiti.
She was received into the APC fold by the State Deputy Chairman, Kemisola Olaleye; Ekiti Central Senatorial Chairman, George Ojo; State Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun; State Women Leader, Dupe Bakare, ward and local government executives of the party.
