Four National Assembly candidates in the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) for Osun State switched to the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday.

The candidates, who addressed journalists at a media briefing in Osogbo, said they left the NNPP because of injustice.

The quartet are Bamigbola Clement Kola and Akinyode Bolaji Mayowa for Osun Central and West Senatorial Districts as well as Fabayo Olalekan Elijah and Ajayi Oluwaseyi Babatunde for Boluwaduro/Ifedayo/Ila and Ijesa South Federal Constituencies respectively.
