2023: Setback as over 400 APC members dump Tinubu for Atiku’s PDP in Oyo

Ahead of the 2023 presidential election, at least 400 members of the All Progressives Con­gress (APC) have defected to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo state.

According to reports, the defectors led by Raji Akeem Kolawole, have drummed support for the can­didature of former Vice Pres­ident Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2023 general elections.

The defection of the APC members to the PDP was consequent upon what they described as the unending deceit and deception within the party, which they said, has not only continued to cause more harm to their personal development as politicians than good but also is danger­ous for the entrenchment of internal democracy within a political party.

While receiving the decam­pees into the PDP on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, the Coordi­nator for Atiku/Okowa Sup­port Movement in Oyo State, Mayoress Olubukola Olay­inka, said the work that lies ahead is beyond anybody’s personal interest, stressing that 2023 is all about rescuing Nigeria for Nigerians.

Olayinka, who was the state deputy chairman of the Labour Party (LP), recently led her political followers and supporters across the state into the PDP for the actual­ization of Atiku’s Presidency come 2023.

While delivering her welcome address, Olayinka maintained that Atiku’s Pres­idency in 2023 is like a moving train whose time has come.

She added that the mo­mentum, which is consis­tently gathering in favour of Atiku within the political landscape, must be sustained.

She said the momentum was evident in the defection of over 400 card-carrying APC members in Oyo State into the PDP with the prima­ry aim of lending their sup­port towards the actualiza­tion of the ‘Atiku/Okowa’s PDP Presidency.

“Their defection is hinged on the spate of untold hard­ship, insecurity, economic woes, high-handedness, nep­otism, and insensitivity to the plight and yearnings of citizens that have character­ized the government of Presi­dent Muhammadu Buhari, as well as the choice of the APC to field another presidential candidate whose health con­dition may plunge Nigeria into another round of medi­cal tourism,” she said.
