Defection: APC Will Dump You, PDP Tells Akala, Folarin, Others


Otunba Alao-Akala


By; BAYO AKAMO, Ibadan

The Peoples Democratic Party PDP) on Sunday said the former governor of Oyo State , Otunba  Adebayo Alao- Akala , and the former Senate Leader, Senator Teslim Folarin, will be used and dumped soon the All Progressives Congress, (APC).

PDP stated this in a statement by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary , Prince Diran Odeyemi lamented that it was unfortunate that Otunba Akala, Senator Folarin and others that defected to the APC last Saturday could allowed themselves to be for fooled and deceived into joining APC at this period when even prominent APC members and leaders are already on their way out of the party.

Emphasizing that that it was glaring that there was no way  Otunba Akala, Senator Folarin and their co defectors could realise their potentials in the APC as  the ruling party would never consider them as stakeholders in their party, PDP in the statement advised them to without wasting time return to the party (PDP)  and join other chieftains to rescue Nigeria from the ruling APC .

“It is a political miscalculation if our respected leaders are going to where they do not belong and cannot learn from the experiences of ex -governor Rasheed Ladoja, Prof. Taoheed Adedoja and the other APC bigwigs in Oyo State , who recently retraced their steps back to the PDP after being used and dumped by the APC .” It said.

Specifically, PDP added that Otunba Akala, the former Senate leader and others  should emulate former Vice President Atiku Abubakar ; former Governor Rashidi Ladoja and Prof. Taoheed Adedoja , who once dumped the PDP but returned to the party .

“Going by the experiences of many political heavyweights that have left its fold to join the APC in the past , Akala and Folarin’s decision to join the party is nothing but a misstep, especially now that majority of Nigerians are waiting on the party to rescue them from the national calamity owing to the lack of capacity by the Federal Government to deal with the myriad of challenges facing the country .”

According to the party,many of the politicians that left the PDP for the APC before 2015 general elections were already regretting their actions on realizing that APC have nothing in stock for them but rather used them to get into  power in 2015.

“Akala and Folarin as PDP ’ s gifts to Nigerians, they  had nothing to gain from the fast sinking ship of the APC   APC would celebrate defectors but would later dump them .”
