More than 3,000 members of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Ondo state have defected to the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA).
NAIJ.com gathered that SDP members led by Yinka Opawole dumped their party saying they belonged to the Omoluwabi Platform.
Leaders of the party on Thursday, June 15, who rose from a stakeholders meeting in Akure,blamed the hardship being experienced by Nigerians on “inept leadership and downright lack of feelings for the serious economic downturn occasioned by lack of a clear cut economic blueprint by the current government.”
Ambassador Omolade Oluwateru, a member of the Board of Trustee (BoT) and former deputy governor of Ondo, speaking at the meeting regretted that Nigerians invested so heavily in the current administration.
According to him the people voted overwhelmingly for the party with the hope that it would provide the needed motivation for a greater Nigeria.
Earlier, Naij.com reported that the special assistant to President Muhamadu Buhari on prosecution, Okoi Obono-Obla, said the All Progressives Congress (APC) will exist for 200 years “because it has done well”.
Obono-Obla made the remark after presenting his book entitled ‘APC: The Making of a Change Agent’ to John Oyegun, national chairman of the party.
“I said in the next 200 years, APC will be alive. Yes, why not? Because we have done very well and we are going to remain in power as long as long as we continue to do well, we believe Nigerian people will always vote for us,” he said.
