APC Celebrates Major PDP Defections in Omuaran

Prince Fagbemi, RT. Hon. Danladi, Hon. Odetundun, Hon. Jide Oyinloye welcome PDP decampees to APC in Omuaran

The ancient town of Omuaran was set agog with fun and merriment on the afternoon of Sunday the 4th of December. The secretariat of Irepodun local government was the venue for the reception of large numbers of PDP stalwarts consisting of formerly elected council legislators, party executives, critical opinion moulders, political influencers and vibrant youths. 

These repentant converts are eagerly announcing their new status as they chorused Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq is "our leader", in response to the slogan of APC. The state party chairman, prince Sunday Fagbemi received the defectors led by Hon. Muyiwa Oladipo, famously referred to as Kanu, an erudite political grass rooter, a former elected local government chairman of Irepodun and committed mass mobilizer. The host party members were quick to warn the new entrants with the warning song of " a o gbodo gbo power lenu yin mo". 

Hon. Oladipo thanked the governor for his convincing projects and policies which clearly distinguished APC as a gender friendly, youth loving and mass oriented party. He thanked the welcoming party organ in Irepodun and the state at large for the opportunity extended to them in joining the winning party. 

Ardoned in T- shirts with the inscription " it's now official", the new entrants displayed enthusiastic commitment to their new home. Speaking in turns to the crowd of old and new members, prince Olarewaju Shuaib, a microphone kissing orator and indisputable leader of Irepodun family of progressives assured the new entrants of equal rights and privileges. 

While Hon. Odetundun said it's politically suicidal for anyone to think of gaining relevance in any other political party today in Kwara state. In his own words, Hon. Jide Oyinloye, the official host of the event affirmed the possibility of new members to fly far higher here as members are only guided by the constitution, and not by godfathers. 

The speaker of the house of assembly of the state, Mallam Danladi who is the golden visitor at the event spoke of governor Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq's leadership quality that afforded youths like him to prove his worth in service to our community, and promised everyone present of availability of more opportunities in the coming days.

Alhaji Azees Yakub, the APC party chairman of Irepodun local government, who anchored the event professionally administered the pass of the symbol of the party, a bunch of broom, to the new entrants.
