Defection: Osun APC Chairman commends stakeholders 

The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Osun State has commended all the stakeholders of the party for the successful defection programme of Shuaib Oyedokun and Dotun Babayemi.

Oyedokun, who was the former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and member, PDP's Board of Trustees; Babayemi, a former governorship aspirant of the PDP defected to the APC on Friday, in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.

The Osun State chairman of the APC, Tajudeen Lawal, in a statement issued by the party's Director of Media and Information, Kola Olabisi, on Sunday, stated that he was grateful to God Almighty for making the defection event hitch-free without any record of untoward incident before, during and after it. 

According to the statement, "I appreciate former Governor Gboyega Oyetola now Minister of Marine and Blue Economy and Engr Sola Akinwumi, the chairman of Igbimo Agba in the state for the roles they played to ensure the success of the defections.

"I commend the PDP decampees and assure them that there would always be equal opportunity for them and the members of the party they met on ground."

He  charged them to start attending the APC political meetings in their units, wards, local governments as it is only regular meetings that could translate to a serious political involvement of members of any particular party.

Lawal used the medium to appreciate President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Alhaji Oyetola for deeming it fit to appoint members and supporters of the APC in the state as chairmen and members of governing councils of some Federal Government-owned tertiary institutions.

"The board appointments rolled out by  President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for some of  our people few hours after the defection of some PDP members into the APC is a confirmation to them that their destiny is bright in the party that controls the centre."
