Newly Elected Speaker, Principal Officers Decamp To Apc. by onyii255(m): 4:09pm On Apr 03, 2017
Bamidele Oleyelogun, the newly-elected Speaker of the Ondo state House of Assembly, has decamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
According to Vanguard, Oleyelogun representing Ifedore Constituency, was voted as the new speaker of the Assembly after he polled nine out of 13 votes against Olamide George, representing Akure-North, who got four votes.

Oleyelogun, accompanied by some principal officers of the House, made the announcement at a news conference on Monday, April 3, in Akure.
He added that he would be decamping officially with some other members on Tuesday, April 4, on the floor of the house.

“We are here today to signify our intention to join the ruling party, APC. The other ceremony will be done tomorrow (Tuesday).

“At the national level, they have factionalised our party. The same scenario is also at the state level. This declaration is for our followers and those we represent.

“We are ready to work with the executive without any problem, and all necessary things to be done are in place. Be rest assured that Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu is ready to work and we are ready to support him,’’ he added.

The newly-elected deputy Speaker, Ogundeji Iroju, said people should not be surprised by their move to cross to the ruling party.

Iroju, representing Odigbo Constituency II, said it became imperative for them to cross to the ruling party because the PDP was in a serious mess.

He added that it was the APC that could deliver good governance to the people of the state.
Ifedayo Abegunde, the Secretary to the State Government, who received them on behalf of the state government, said he was happy they were increasing the party at the state level.
