Oyo lawmaker dumps APC for PDP
MEMBER representing Ibadan North II constituency, Honourable Olusegun Olaleye, on Thursday, disclosed his decision to dump the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Olaleye made this disclosure while answering questions on why he adorned the same Ankara attire that members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) wore to the state Assembly to show solidarity with recently elected Honourable Debo Ogundoyin, representing Ibarapa East constituency.
Not denying his show of association with the PDP, Olaleye said he had become a political disciple of former governor Rashidi Ladoja and aligned with whatever political party Ladoja was a member of currently and afterwards.
Olaleye said he observed a political cum ideological departure in happenings in the APC, hence his decision to leave the party.
Life is about dynamism and before I was under the political tutelage of Late Lam Adesina. Few weeks ago, I decided to take another historic, spiritual and political decision to be under the tutelage of a political leader in the state, former governor Rashidi Ladoja. I am under him presently and wherever you find him politically, there you will find me.
“I have decamped to Ladoja’s house in Bodija. For now, I, Honourable Olusegun Olaleye, am no longer with the All Progressives Congress (APC). I am now under the tutelage of Senator Rashidi Ladoja and wherever he is, tomorrow, you will find me there. The issue has to do with political, ideological departure from what it used to be,”
Meanwhile, Ogundoyin was at Thursday’s plenary formally admitted as a member of the Assembly, where he spoke of his agenda to collaborate with other legislators to see to the good of the state.
After administering the oath of allegiance to the Ogundoyin, Speaker of the Assembly, Honourable Olagunju Ojo urged Ogundoyin to work closely with other members towards ensuring a better Ibarapa East constituency and Oyo state, at large.
