PDP Suffers Major Setback in Ondo as Members Defect to APC

There was massive defection of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) supporters to the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday at Afo in Ose local government area of Ondo State, according to the Nation.

The defectors were led by a community leader and Atunluse of Afo, Chief R.B Animola. At the event witnessed by many party supporters, the Asiwaju of Afo community, Chief Oni Olowu said the grassroots mobilization drive and sensitization of the people to come out massively to support the APC is the key to the success of the progressive party in the coming gubernatorial election.

He commended the leader of the decampees, Animola who worked for the realisation of the massive defection of PDP members to APC in the community.

Olowu described Animola as a political reference point in Ose local government, Ondo State and Nigeria, whose political experience spanning over 60 years and still counting. He expressed his gratitude on behalf of the six Irekari communities in the Local government area.

The politician also appreciated God that he witnessed the reception of those he called “Children” who almost lost to the falsehood and deception orchestrated by the “clueless” leadership of the past ruling party in the country for 16 years.

Animola expressed delight for the opportunity to lead many people from the “darkness to light”, stressing that they would work assiduously to ensure the victory of APC in the state during the November governorship poll. He urged APC supporters, particularly the new decampees to embark on massive mobilisation for the party.

According to Animola “come February 2017, we want to send the usurpers in the administration of the sunshine stay away with our votes and we are fully determined to achieve this”.

Present at the occasion were the Ose Local Government APC Chairman, Chief J. M. Oredola, a governorship aspirant, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN) and many other party stalwarts.
