- Say PDP is party of broken promises
Special Assistant to Ondo State Governor on Political Mobilisation, Hon. Mosunmola Awotula, has led hundreds of members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, into the All Progressive Congress, APC, in Irele local government area of the state yesterday.
Speaking on behalf of the decampees, Awotula, popularly called iron lady, described the PDP as a party of broken promises which has inflicted pains on the people of the state, stressing that Governor Mimiko has played his last card and can no longer deceive and cajole the people of the state into voting for the PDP.
According to her, “We are the strong leaders of the PDP in Irele, I have been a woman leader in ward 2, after that I became organising secretary before Mimiko came to PDP.
“When Mimiko defect to PDP, he rendered us, the executive members useless and refused to carry us along in the scheme of things, which shows that Mimiko is a selfish leader.”
Also explaining why they left PDP, one of the leaders and a community chief, Hon. Ikuemelo described the PDP as a dilapidated building, saying they left the party before it will collapse on them.
Noting that the PDP in the state will soon become a dead party with no strength within the sunshine state, he said there is no PDP in Irele local Government anymore with their exit.
Ikuemelo assured that the APC will become victorious in the coming November 26 governorship election.
Receiving the defectors, the deputy chairman of the APC in the state, Engineer Ade Adetimehin, assured the defectors of equal treatment, saying no founder, no joiner.
He charged them to preach the gospel of APC and mobilise others into the party, asserting that the defector must work together with leaders of the party in the area to ensure that the party wins the community in the coming election.
Among the decampees were Ayaki of Irele land, Chief Olorunda Ikuemelo, PDP Vice Chairman in ward Four, Dayo Olajide, Comrade Ademuwagun Fakomogbo, Comrade Soji Olowotimehin and Madam Aderotoye Abike.
Others included Akinbamiro Ojuetimi, Olayinka Moyo and Comrade Adebayo Adegoroye.
