Osun By-Election: Adeleke Defects From APC To PDP
Ademola Adeleke is not satisfied with the electoral process adopted by All Progressive Congress in the build up to the Osun by-election.
As a result he may have defected to the Peoples Democratic Party to contest the July 8 senatorial polls.
A chieftain of the PDP, who pleaded anonymity, said Adeleke would contest on the platform of the opposition party.
He said, “We have been talking to our leaders and members on this. We want to win this election and we know that he is popular. Adeleke will contest on the platform of the PDP.
“The APC has decided to clear Mudashiru Hussain despite his disqualification and the Adeleke group is aware that the APC primary would be manipulated to favour Hussain.”
The Chairman of the PDP in Osun State, Soji Adagunodo has confirmed the Adeleke's move.
The Secretary, Adeleke Support Group, Saheed Afolabi, who is a chieftain of the APC, said Adeleke had picked the PDP nomination form to contest the primary expected to hold on Wednesday.
