Mimiko’s commissioner resigns, defects to APC

16 August 2016, 12:23

Akure - Ondo State Commissioner for Community Development and Cooperative Services, Yetunde Adeyanju, has resigned her appointment.

She submitted her resignation letter on Monday and later issued a press statement where she announced her defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Adeyanju said she is leaving the PDP, a party where “impunity reigns” as she commended President Buhari’s anti-corruption crusade.

“The relief came from a refreshing freedom a political family where impunity reigns, freedom from subversion of democratic principles and indeed, freedom from deification of sycophancy,” the former commissioner said.

“In the last seven years, I have served in various executive capacities in the state. I started as the executive chairman of Ondo State Waste Management Board, later moved on to head Ondo State Development Company Limited as executive chairman and finally, as commissioner in the ministry of Community Development and Cooperative Services.

“Whenever I served, I discharged my duties with utmost dedication and unassailable integrity; notwithstanding the culture of greed, avarice and absolute disregard for the masses.”

“Having exited the conundrum of capricious politics, I have, therefore, decided to align myself with true progressives in the APC.  While I salute the patriots in the APC, I also want to commend President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption crusades.”

“It is, therefore, my  great pleasure to renounce my membership of PDP and announce my membership of APC.”
