AKEREDOLU

The Ondo State chairperson of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Tokunbo Adetoro, has dumped the party and joined the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Naija News reports that this is coming a week to the October 10 governorship election in Ondo State.

Adetoro who also led some members of the ADC to the APC was received by the ruling party chairman, Ade Adetimehin, on Saturday, at the party secretariat, in Akure, the state capital.

Welcoming the defectors to the APC, Adetimehin commended them for taking what he called “the right step in the right direction”.

He expressed confidence that their association with the APC would further boost the chances of the ruling party at the poll.

The ADC defectors vowed to work with the APC to ensure that the candidate of the party, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, win the forthcoming governorship poll.

Speaking on behalf of the defectors, Adetoro said the decision to collapse the ADC structure for the ruling party was informed by the performance of the Akeredolu-led government across the state.

“We will work for the success of the APC in Saturday’s election because Governor Akeredolu deserves a second term,” Adetoro said.
