Lagos PDP Chieftain Defects To APC
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Agege area of Lagos, Mr Raheem Oyeniyi, on Tuesday defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Oyeniyi cited Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s sterling performance as reason for his defection.
Oyeniyi was PDP House of Representatives candidate for Agege constituency in the 2015 general elections.
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.
