Senator Adesoji Akanbi Dumps APC, Registers As ADC Member by Shegman22(m): 7:32am On Sep 21
The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State,
has lost one of its two remaining senators, OYO
INSIGHT can authoritatively confirm.
Sen. Adesoji Akanbi, who represents Oyo South in
the Nigerian Senate this afternoon registered himself
as a member of the African Democratic Congress,
ADC, at his Ibadan North West local government
area.
The APC had in 2015 won all the three senatorial
seats in Oyo State. The party lost one of the
senators, former speaker Monsurat Sunmonu, who
represents Oyo Central to ADC.
As it stands, APC has only Dr. AbdulFatai Buhari
as senator from the state.
Akanbi, this newspaper had hinted, decided to leave
the APC following the insistence of outgoing governor
Abiola Ajimobi to return to the Senate where he left
in 2007.
Confirming the development to OYO INSIGHT,
Akanbi, who is a former House of Representatives’
member said he registered at the party’s Ekotedo
secretariat, adding that he would address his
constituents through a press conference soon.
OYO INSIGHT learnt that Akanbi had established
talks with the leadership of the party weeks back.
Recently, he was said to have met the party’s
leaders in the state, which included Chief Rashidi
Ladoja, Chief Michael Koleoso, Dr Busari Adebisi
and Chief Olayiwola Olakojo.

Defection long overdue.


I knew he would dump APC because there is no how he can contend with Ajimobi to get Oyo South ticket. Adesojii has no political ebullience in Ibadan again.


He might not even get the ticket in ADC.


Meanwhile, a crack in ADC looms in Oyo state.

Ladoja is powerful sha! When he was in Accord, Accord was the major party after APC in Oyo. Now in ADC, the party is a major party in the state, ahead of PDP and others. Only 2019 will determine who will control the state.
