No sooner 2,500 members of the PDP defected to the All Progressives Congress in Asa and Ilorin, than another batch of the governing party members swarmed into the APC in the state.

At least 15 serving councillors of PDP said they have joined the APC—in the interest of the masses.

.Speaking on behalf of the defectors, Suleiman Taoheed representing Ajanaku Ward in Moro Local Government Area, explained that the current PDP administration in Kwara had failed.

“We are tired of lies and poor performance of the incumbent administration in the state and as a result, we cannot be left behind in building better and brighter Kwara.

“Everybody is complaining about the political hegemony in Kwara because the system has not brought positive changes to the people of the state,” Taoheed said.

He promised on behalf of the defectors to mobilise electorate in their respective wards and vote en masse for all APC candidates on Saturday.

They also pledged their support for AbdulRahman Abdulrazaq, the APC governorship candidate, stating that he had good plans for the state considering his antecedents.

They revealed that more serving councillors would join APC before Saturday.

Receiving the defectors, Dr. Alimi Abdulrazaq, an APC stalwart and brother to the governorship flag bearer said that they would not regret their decision.

Abdulrazaq noted that his brother, when elected would ensure that local governments have full autonomy, and draw government closer to the people at the grassroots.

He urged them to mobilise electorate to vote Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq and all APC state assembly candidates in the elections.

The defected councillors are: Adam Tsado, (Edu), Ogundele Segun, (Isin), James Kayode, (Ilorin East), Aremu Jamiu, (Moro), Olorunrinu Suleiman, (Ilorin South)

Others are: Omolara Sanni, (Isin), Adebayo Olatayo, (Isin) Saheed Abdulwasiu, (Isin) Saheed Musbau, (Isin) Adeyemi Oladele, (Isin) Suleiman Taoheed, (Isin), Ishola Seunayo, (Isin) among others.
