The defectors were led into the APC by former Education Secretary of Akoko Southwest, Ware Olukayode, The Nation reports.

According to Olukayode, the APC was made attractive to the defectors due to the developmental revolution of the Oluwarotimi Akeredolu led administration in Akoko.

The former education secretary commended the governor for the ongoing project Oka Akoko road rehabilitation.

He said the PDP has become a shadow of itself, adding that it is a party which is no longer acceptable to the people of Akoko.

“We have come to join the winning team. Akeredolu has consolidated on the popularity of the APC in Akoko.

“APC has been winning Akoko for a long time. It is because the party is deep rooted here. We want to join the rest of our people, PDP is no longer a place of abode us.”
