Few days to the general election, the former Commissioner of Environment and Forestry and Chieftain of the PDP in Ekiti local government, Otuba Taiwo Joseph has defected to the All Progressive Congress.
When contacted by THE INFORMANT247, he confirmed the news of his defection to the All Progressive Congress today.
Reacting to this, the Directorate of Media and Publicity, APC campaign committee, Com. Akogun Abdulrasheed said the defection is long overdue and lots of bigwigs are expected to join the party officially on Monday.
“The momentum that the party has gathered is encouraging and demands a mass movement from the street. So all progressive minded politicians in the state across political divides have seen reasons why they must come together and change the state.”
“For anybody that has followed the political trajectory of Otunba Taiwo Joseph for some of us that have worked closely with him, I will say we are not surprised, infact, it’s long overdue because his political orientation and ideology aligns more with the progressives, which the APC represents and not the retrogressive elements.”
“It’s a welcome development and I can assure you between today and Monday many other bigwigs from the Saraki camp will join the moving train.”
“President Buhari is coming on Monday and so many bigwigs will officially join the party that day.”
However, the Head of Department, New Media and Publicity, PDP campaign committe, Baba Idris said he is yet to confirm the news, promising to get back to our correspondent.
