Alao-Akala, while reacting to speculation that he would dump the Peoples Democratic Party, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Ibadan that the All Progressives Congress comprised “strange bedfellows”.

He denied the defection rumour and expressed his determination to remain in the PDP in spite of the challenges.

He said, “I can never leave PDP. I am in PDP and I will be in PDP. I heard that some people were speculating that I am going to another party. How can I leave a big mansion and go to boys’ quarters? Any other party in Nigeria is a boy’s quarters.”

He said the PDP remained a big party with diverse interests, adding that the “gang-up” against the PDP by opposition parties in the form of a merger would fail.

The former governor added, “Because the party is big, some people are even ganging up to fight it and with that too, they cannot get it right because they are not birds of a feather. Circumstances brought them together yet they will still fight.

“If those of us who have common interests are fighting, why won’t those who do not have a common interest fight? So, let us see what will come out of that. They are ganging up because they know that we are Iroko.”

He described those who defected from the PDP to other parties as “political jobbers,’’ saying they would not add value to their new parties.

He added, “If you ask the parties they went to about their impact, they will tell you they have not felt their presence.

“The parties they went to will also be careful in dealing with them because they will repeat what they did where they are coming from. They won’t allow them to have access to their secrets and strategies.”

Alao-Akala urged PDP members in the state to be steadfast and to refrain from engaging in speculation.
