Some leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Akure south LGA of Ondo state have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

NAN reports that the PDP leaders, alongside their supporters, were received by Ade Adetimehin, chairman of the APC in Ondo, at his office in Akure on Friday.

The defectors, who were reportedly led by Smart Oloye, a former deputy chairman of PDP in Akure south LGA, are said to be the followers of the late Adedayo Omolafe, a former member of the house of representatives.

“The reason we are here today is to formally declare for APC after making consultations across the entire political landscape of Akure local government,” Oloye said.


“We want the political structure left behind by our late mentor, Adedayo Omolafe to be fully integrated into APC and given a sense of belonging like every member, and the state chairman of the party, Chief Ade Adetimehin, has assured us of his support.

“We believe it’s the best thing to do moving forward after waiting for this long. And we acknowledge the political sagacity, understanding, and love shown to the group by Mr Adetimehin after the death of our political mentor, Adedayo Omolafe, popularly called Expensive.

“The APC chairman has been very supportive of the family of our late leader.”


Taye Jombo, another defector, said Adetimehin’s “dynamism” in politics has made the other parties weak in the state.

“It is worthy of note that the APC state chairman’s knowledge in politics, management capability, and dynamism continue to weaken the other parties in the state without giving anyone incentives before they voluntarily come to APC,” Jombo said.
