PDP Bigwigs In Ondo State Dumps Party For APC


There was a political storm today in Ondo State, when Femi
Agagu, a former Chief of Staff to the late former Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun
Agagu, led PDP bigwigs to APC.

Femi Agagu defected to APC alongside, the former
Commissioner for Works, Mr. Latin Ayeni; a former Commissioner for Special
Duties, Mr. Norman Sule, a former Commissioner for Women Affairs, Mrs.
Tola Aworh and two former Speakers of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Victor
Olabintan and Taofeek Abdulsalam.
They were received along with their supporters at the APC
state secretariat along Oyemekun Road in Akure. Excited Mr AGagu who said what
was needed in Ondo State was change and indeed Nigeria as a whole gave a long
speech. Read what he said after the cut.

“Today is indeed a watershed in the political history of
Ondo State. Never before have so many notable people chosen to desert a
political party at the same time like this. We have also received the
confidence of distinguished elder statesmen, non-political young and elderly
citizens, who are concerned about the future of our dear state and country.

“There are several reasons for our decision but most
important is the obvious fact that Nigeria needs change and Ondo State, a new
direction. We need change, which is the burden of good, honest, diligent,
prepared, tested and competent leadership.
“Change, which is a mission to a destination of greatness,
where our state and nation ought to be. Change from broken promises, broken
infrastructure, broken confidence, broken trust, broken leadership and broken
future, all from which our people daily and consistently suffer.
“We also need change to ensure Ondo State people are not
left behind in the current movement for a new direction and path for the
greatness of Nigeria. At this juncture, it is our conviction that Ondo State
people are progressive in nature and would fare better in a party that has
progressive ideologies and focused leadership.
“As from today, we make available our sprawling structures,
our minds and capabilities, our assets and experiences as well as our prayers
and goodwill, for our new party, APC, towards the actualisation of the God
ordained, beneficial and messianic election of General Muhammadu Buhari and
Professor Yemi Osinbajo as President and Vice President of the Federal Republic
of Nigeria respectively come February 14, 2015.”

APC State Chairman, Isaac Kekemeke, said the calibre of the
people that were defecting to the party signaled to the world that change had
come to the state.
