Ondo Assembly Will Soon Belong to APC, Says Akeredolu


Ondo State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, on Wednesday predicted that the state House of Assembly would soon be totally taken over by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Five members of Peoples Democratic Party on Wednesday defected to the APC which has consequently increased the number of the lawmakers from the ruling party, as the APC now has 18 out of the 26 lawmakers in the House.

The defectors include the former Deputy Speaker, Mr. Fatai Olotu, Mr. Akinyele Fasogbon, Mr. Kuti Towase, Mr. Bimbo Fadoju and Mr. Tuyi Akintimehin .

Welcoming the new party members at the International Events Centre, Akure, the governor said more PDP state lawmakers will decamp to the ruling party in the next few days.

Akeredolu said, “The House will soon belong to the APC and I want to tell you that we have no enemy among the legislators. All of them are willing to work with us, they are ready to work for the state, we have a wonderful House of Assembly.

“I believe these lawmakers (defectors) will talk to other colleagues (in the PDP) and they too will join us.”

He urged the party leaders across the state not to discriminate against the new party men, saying they should be carried along always in all the party activities in their various local government areas .

Speaking on behalf of other defectors, the immediate former deputy speaker, Olotu, who resigned his from the position following the crisis of the Assembly, said they were wooed by the achievements of the Akerelodu-led administration in the last few months of assuming power in the state.

He particularly commended the governor over his efforts in resolving the recent leadership crisis that rocked the Assembly  .

He expressed the readiness of him and other defectors to support the party.

He said “ We will add value to the APC.”
