PDP Chieftain Defects To APC In Lagos
A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stalwart in Agege area of Lagos has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC)
Raheem Oyeniyi cited Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s sterling performance as the primary reason for joining the APC.
Oyeniyi was the PDP’s House of Representatives candidate for Agege constituency in the 2015 general elections.
He was a founding member of APC in 2013 but left the party due to internal wrangling and defected to PDP.
Oyeniyi gave notice of his defection in a letter to the APC ward chairman in Orile-Agege area on Tuesday.
In the letter titled “Letter of Intention to Return to All Progressives Congress’’, Oyeniyi said that he considered APC as a platform to actualise his dreams for the people.
“I write to inform you of my intention to return to APC henceforth.
“My intention to return is borne out of the belief that the APC today is by far more democratic inclined.
“APC offers the forum of which I can actualise my desire and the aspirations of my people for a better Nigeria,’’ he said.
