PDP Loses National Officer To APC
The Peoples Democratic Party has lost one of its National Executive Committee (NEC) member from Kwara State, Ahmed Yinka Aluko, to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
Aluko, who ran in the 2015 elections as Deputy Governorship candidate on the PDP platform, resigned his elective position and membership during Thursday’s NEC meeting.
The former Special Adviser on Security Matters in Kwara accused the opposition of impunity and undemocratic practices.
Aluko said he was displeased by the decision of the PDP national leadership to hand over the structure of the PDP to Senate President Bukola Saraki, who returned to the party on Tuesday.

"It is therefore, shocking that the party at the national level has resolved to hand over the party structures and all electable positions to defectors without any regards for those who stood by the party and built it into a strong winning machine in Kwara.
"It is even more shocking that as the only national officer from Kwara State and NEC member was not consulted”.
Aluko said he was leaving PDP for a more democratic platform.
