The commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs during the administration of Rauf Aregbesola as the Governor of Osun State, Kolapo Alimi has expressed his plan to join the Peoples Democratic Party.
According to Alimi, the date for his defection from the All Progressives Congress has not been chosen yet.
This is coming at the time there is a crisis between the Governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola and the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola.
It was gathered that some other loyalists of Aregbesola have concluded plans to dump the APC.
There had been a video jingle that revealed that Alimi had planned to join the PDP on March 23, along with his supporters.
While speaking on the video he said though the date in the jingle has elapsed, he would leave APC if the differences between The Osun Progressives (TOP) and the governor’s IleriOluwa group cannot be resolved.
According to him, “The date fixed for my decamping to PDP on the jingle was 23rd March 2022, it has elapsed and is outdated.
“Although there is a plan to join PDP, no date has been fixed. I don’t know anything about that jingle, I will make an official declaration if I am defecting.”
“It is possible to decamp to the PDP because we have issues with Oyetola, which everybody knows, so it is a possibility. If it gets to the level of defects, why not, but as of today, I am still a member of APC.”
