Segun Odebunmi, the only PDP member in the House of Representatives from Oyo state, on Wednesday, November 1, led about 5,000 members of the party in his Surulere/Ogo Oluwa federal constituency to the ruling APC in the state.

During his official declaration, the former PDP federal lawmaker said his decision to join APC was influenced by the decision of his people and political associates.

“The resolve to join the ruling party was influenced by the decision of my people and political associates.”

He insisted the decision became necessary after realizing that PDP leaders were not ready for genuine reconciliation.

“I told my people to interact and decide on where to go, and that is the result of what we are doing today. I am sure that our movement to APC will bring more goods and development to our people.

“Since my early days in politics, I have not been taking decisions on my own, apart from God, my people are the next and they have been very supportive; so, whatever they say I will do," he said.
