The defectors are from the Ogun East Senatorial District of the state.
The defectors, who were received by the Senior Special Adviser to the Governor on Political Matters, Mr. Tunji Egbetokun, said they took the decision in a show of solidarity with Governor Dapo Abiodun.
Egbetokun, who stood in for the governor, said the defectors had made the right choice by joining “the progressives”, assuring them that the party would ensure fairness, equity and justice for all its members at all times, irrespective of when they joined.
“Our party is open to all, even members of other parties. You have come at the right time.
“In our party, we do not discriminate; rather, we give due recognition to all members, irrespective of how long they have been members or their social standing,” he said.
Egbetokun further promised that the Abiodun-led administration would not disappoint members by formulating and executing policies and programmes that would have positive impact on the socio-economic well-being of the people.
He also urged the party faithful to remain resolute and not engage in activities that would bring the name of the party into disrepute.
