Ojo, son of the first Vice Chancellor of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Prof. Afolabi Ojo, defected at Ward 11 in Ado Ekiti, on Friday.
He was received by the APC State Deputy Chairman, Hon. Sola Elesin, APC chairman, Ado Local Government, Hon. Mike Akinleye and chairman of Ward 11, Mr Adegoke on behalf of the State Working Committee, chaired by Hon Paul Omotoso.
Speaking on behalf of the SWC, Elesin, said the 2022 governorship election would be a work over for the party when Fayemi completes the implementation of his 4-cardinal agenda.
He said the governor can only achieve this if the ruling party enjoys stability and unity of purpose among members.
“The leader of the defectors is an illustrious son of Ado Ekiti. His father served Ado Ekiti and Ekiti in general. So, he will add value to us.
” We don’t recognise factions in APC. We are one and indivisible entity, so don’t create crisis, because we are all equal.
” Don’t discriminate against anybody, the new and old members are one. Our government has begun youth empowerment like; the Ekiti State Peace Corps, Social Security Scheme for the elderly, among others, we want to tell you that all the new joiners will enjoy the same privileges like the old members “.
APC Chairman, Ado local government, Mr. Mike Akinleye, said the defectors enjoy the same privileges within the party as old members.
He urged them, party members, to have confidence in Governor Kayode Fayemi’s ability to be able to turn around the fortunes of the state by his deep and astute approach to governance.
Speaking further, Ojo said: “My journey started in PDP, but it will was a very awkward and disappointing one. We were not taken care of. I only took an Israelites’ journey by passing through the PDP.
” Let me assure you, I will continue to do my best to promote APC because I believe I have a good future in the party and for the fact that I am a progressive.
