Again, Another PDP Lawmaker Defects To APC In Lagos Assembly - Vanguard by afroniger: 6:33pm On Jul 10, 2017

One out of the remaining two Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) members in the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr Victor Akande(PDP-Ojo I), on Monday defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC). Akande informed the House of his defection on the floor of the Assembly through a letter he addressed to the Speaker, Mr Mudashiru Obasa, which was read by the Clerk of the Assembly, Mr Azeez Sanni. Akande, in the letter, said he was defecting because of the factions in the PDP, which he said were not just two but four, especially in Lagos State.

My defection is to further continue my support of adding legislative excellence to Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode and the political leadership of the Speaker of the Assembly, who has impacted on legislative standards in the state. “PDP has fallen apart and the centre can no longer hold, so I have chosen to follow the stable APC. I thank PDP for giving me the political platform to showcase myself. “I also thank my constituents and traditional rulers in my constituency for their support.

I will continue to give them better representation and for me, this is a home coming,’’ Akande said. Commenting on the letter, Akande said he moved to APC with the blessings of his people from the Ojo Constituency I, including the royal fathers and all indigenes and non indigenes of the constituency. “I consulted widely before arriving at the decision to dump PDP for APC. I hereby shed the garb of PDP and I want to now be clothed with the APC garb,’’ Akande said. Akande’s counterpart from the Ojo Constituency II, Mr Olanrewaju Ogunyemi, said, “Akande has made our day in Ojo with this defection. “Actually, there is nothing more for him to do in the PDP than to move to the moving train of the APC.’’

The Speaker of the House, Mr Mudashiru Obasa, congratulated his colleagues for their good work, which he said, made all the defections possible. Obasa also thanked Akande for coming on board the APC. He said: “We know you are a man of integrity and we are sure that image will reflect in our party,’’ Obasa said. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that six out of the eight PDP lawmakers in the Assembly had defected to APC on Feb. 16. With the latest defection, the sole opposition lawmaker in the Assembly is Mr Dipo Olorunrinu, representing Amuwo-Odofin Constituency I.

I understand the fact that there is freedom to join any political party yet I believe if you're just joining APC now you're an enemy of Progress.
