Olajumoke Akinjide, Nigeria's former minister of state for Federal Capital Territory (FCT), says she still remains a loyal and committed member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo state.
The Sun reports that Akinjide made the clarification against the speculation that she has followed former governor of the state, Senator Rashidi Ladoja, to the African Democratic Congress (ADC).
In a statement by Isiaka Kehinde, her special assistant on media, Akinjide assured the people that she would not dump the PDP.
“In view of the ongoing defection of Ladoja and others from the PDP to ADC, I wish to state categorically that I remain a staunch member of the PDP.
“I acknowledge Ladoja’s inalienable and constitutional right to move to any party of his choice, and deeply regret that he could not find accommodation in PDP. I remain a loyal and committed member of the PDP and will work assiduously towards the party’s success in the forthcoming general election,” she said in the statement.
She however urged everybody to work together to strengthen the PDP and uphold the values of internal discipline for the party to record a landslide victory in the forthcoming general election.
