A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain in Ekiti State, Hon Adeyemi
Orilele has denied planning to defect to the All Progressives Congress

Hon Adeyemi Orilele, who represented the Ekiti Central Federal
Constituency II in the fourth House of Representatives, said in a
statement issued in Ado-Ekiti on Monday that those who included his
name among those they were expecting to decamp to APC were only
wasting their time.

Hon Orilele, who said he was totally in support of the government of
Governor Ayodele Fayose, noted that as a loyal party man, he will
remain in the PDP and continue to support the governor.

He said there was nothing untoward in the PDP in Ekiti State that will
warrant his leaving the party, adding that; “Even if anyone wants to
leave PDP for another party in Ekiti, is it a factionalised APC that
will be the option?

“As at today, there are six factions in the APC in Ekiti State. Which
faction will anyone going to join the party join? Is it the Action
Group faction, Eyi Yato faction, Irewolede faction or Integrity

He advised any PDP member contemplating defecting to the APC to be
mindful of taking step that will lead them to political obscurity,
saying; “I wonder how possible it is for the APC to hand over its
governorship ticket to a decampee from PDP.
