Oke’s Defection to AD, a Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish, Says Ondo APC

By Maxwell Adeyemi Adeleye
 
Ondo State All Progressives Congress (APC) said yesterday that the defection of
its former governorship aspirant, Chief Olusola Oke, to Alliance for Democracy (AD)
will not affect its chances in the November 26 poll.


It said it would rather “collapse the already sinking Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)”,
where Jegede has a chunk of his supporters.

 
The party’s spokesman, Omo’ba Abayomi Adesanya, said none of his core members
defected with Oke to AD.


The APC added that his defection did not take the party by surprise since “a Leopard
will never change its spot”.
 

The party revealed that its leadership, particularly those in the Southwest, have
never for once trusted Oke’s claim that he was done with the PDP.
 

It noted that it was one of the reasons why he was moving from one media house to
another, pledging his loyalty to the party and promising not to defect from APC, if he
did not get the party’s ticket.
 

It stressed that despite Oke was “wearing the cloth of APC”, they “still believe that the
blood of PDP runs in his vein”.
 

The party alleged that it was aware from day one when Oke joined APC that he did
not love the party, but only has a mission to it and leave.
 

The APC said: “That was why Oke was the first aspirant to raise an alarm over the
governorship primary election and thereafter arranged his female cook and one of his
family members to present themselves as fake delegates allegedly used during the
poll to dent the free and fair poll.”

 
It alleged that the politician’s character was behind the reason why APC failed to win his
local government in Ilaje during the poll.

 
The APC added that Oke could not deliver two constituencies in his local government
during the state assembly election despite his claim that he was strong in the riverine
area.
 

It said: “We are relieved that Oke has finally left our great party; we can now sleep with
our two eyes closed.


“The fear of mole in our party has vanished; we can now hold political discussion
without fear of betrayal.
 
“This forthcoming election will be a contest of integrity versus valueless images. We are
sure that the people of Ondo State are watching and they are ready to follow the
path of integrity.


“We thank God that our party is finally free from pretenders; those who love their
ambitions than the good people of Ondo State.


“We are confident that with the people of Ondo State behind us, victory is a starting
point.”
