Few days after attending the All Progressives Congress (APC) reconciliation, African Democratic Congress, (ADC) governorship candidate in Oyo State in the 2019 general elections, Senator Olufemi Lanlehin and his supporters on Monday dumped the party for APC.
The ADC governorship candidate at a meeting of the party’s leaders, loyalists and supporters held at his Adabeji residence in Ibadan briefed the Oyo state Executive Committee of the party led by Reverend Ezekiel Adeniran and some candidates of the party in the last general elections on the series of reconciliatory meetings he had attended in the conclusion of the plans towards rejoining APC.
Also, Senator Lanlehin briefed the meeting on other measures put in place to ensure that APC in Oyo state ” is well reconciled, and takes its rightful pride of place in the governance of the state”.
According to Senator Lanlehin, “the reconciliation process by the National Reconciliation Committee of the APC headed by His Excellency, Governor of Jigawa State, Alh. Mohammed Badaru Abubakar, supported by four other governors, including Ekiti State’s Governor Kayode Fayemi, is clearly succeeding in its given task,”.
Senator Lanlehin at the meeting stated that there will be no going back in his desire to always prioritize the interest of the common man, and that in all the steps he has taken thus far, remaining pro-people has remained centrepiece.
However, at the end of the meeting, a motion for the eventual movement of Senator Lanlehin and the entire structure of the Oyo State African Democratic Congress (ADC), enmasse into the All Progressives Congress (APC) was subsequently moved, seconded and adopted”.
