Ekiti LGA APC Lampoons PDP For Staging Own Members As APC Defectors

Leadership of the All Progressive Congress, APC in Ekiti Local Government Area of Kwara State, Friday, described the purported defection of its members in Opin ward to the opposition People's Democratic Party, PDP, as “a fake news meant to decieve the party's deputy governorship candidate by the failed politicians leading the PDP in the Local government.

The Local Government Publicity Secretary of the party, High Chief Fatoyinbo Micheal, equally described the news, which is currently trending on social media platforms as “mischievous and poorly scripted” 

He insisted that there was no iota of truth in the 'shameless lie' making the rounds on social media news platforms, alleging the defection of one Chief Bola Daramola from Opin Ward, who he said was never at anytime a member of the All Progressive Congress, APC in the ward or at any level at all.
His words: “Ordinarily, we would not have dignifed such inanity from the now 'frustrated PDP with an official response, but to ensure that nobody is held in doubt about the falsehood and deciet inherent in the said defection story, we not only declare unequivocally that Chief Bola Daramola or anyone linked to him was/were at no time, member(s) of our party, the All Progressive Congress,, APC at any point in time and could not have defected from where he never belonged to.

"Chief Daramola from Isolo Opin in Opin ward was known to be a member of the opposition People's Democratic Party, PDP in the ward and was said, from information gathered, to have vied for the PDP's State House of Assembly ticket in the recently concluded parties' primaries, but was overlooked by the party, as he was denied the ticket.of the party.

 "This was said to have infuriated the Chief, which made him to run to some chieftains of the All Progressive Congress, APC, seeking to be absorbed into the ruling party. The leadership of the APC in the ward had cast a doubt on his loyalty and commitment to party politics, hence, refused to absorb him by outrightly rejecting him due to his known political inconsistence.

"However, for the PDP in Ekiti Local Government Area to have shamelessly declared a media fun-fare with their party's deputy governorship candidate, describing their reconcilliation with their 'aggrieved member' as defection, is to say the least, a display of frustration and anguish by a dying political party.
"Perhaps, the PDP had wished to console its few remaining members in the Local Government Area, who have been suffering, with spirits dampened from series of gale of defection of their key members to the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, as a result of the beyond excellent perfomance of the State Governor, Malam AbdulRasaq AbdulRahman and other elected and appointed officials of the party in the Local Government Area, and across the State in general" he added.

While saying that “only recently, some key members of the PDP, which included Mrs. Afolayan Bola (Yeye-Oge) and others, including members of the party's executive, who will be unveiled to the party's membership hierarchy soon.

He therefore, enjoined members of the party, the All Progressive Congress, APC, in the the local government area, to remain steadfast and be wary of the deception and 'yahoo-yahoo' antics of the dying opposition PDP in the local government area, assuring that their pettiness is inconsequential.
