Senator Kola Balogun Dumps PDP



Kola Balogun, a senator representing Oyo South Senatorial District, has announced his resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Naija News reports that he disclosed this in a statement signed by his media aide Dapo Falade on Monday evening.

This online newspaper reports that his announcement is coming after the All Progressives Congress received scores of defectors from the PDP or the ADC.

It was gathered that Balogun resigned his members following the refusal of the PDP to give him a return ticket to the Senate.

The ticket had been handed to Joseph Tegbe, who defected to the party from APC.

Balogun who was the only PDP senator from Oyo in the ninth senate thanked the party for giving him the opportunity, saying his resignation took effect from April 28.

He said: “I, Sen. Kola Balogun, representing Oyo South Senatorial District in the ninth Senate, Federal Republic of Nigeria, hereby tender my membership resignation from PDP with effect from April 28.

“I thank the party for giving me the opportunity to serve my people in the capacity of a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and your cooperation which I enjoyed till the month of April 2022. I wish the party the best of luck. I thank you.”

Naija News reports that Balogun, a younger brother of the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Lekan Balogun, is the vice-chairman of the Senate Committee on Sports and Youth Development.
