The faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State, loyal to the former governor and Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, is planning to join the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
The crisis between Aregbesola and his successor, Adegboyega Oyetola, has been heightened recently with the alleged neglect of members of the factional group in the congresses of the party.
The emergence of Senator Iyiola Omisore as National Secretary of APC was also rejected by the faction who accused the party of promoting the “killer of Chief Bola Ige.”
A video circulated on social media recently showed that the former Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Kolapo Alimi, has perfected plans to join the PDP with some of his supporters.
When contacted, Alimi, who has openly declared hatred for Oyetola, said the video has lapsed, promising that the new date will be announced soon.
He noted that the video claimed that the open declaration will take place on 23rd March which has lapsed.
“The date on the video has lapsed. It was supposed to be on the 23rd of March. Though there is a plan to join PDP, no time has been fixed. When it is time, you will hear it directly from me. You will see it on my Facebook, and Twitter pages, and on the radio.
“There would have been an open declaration. So, no date has been fixed for now. It is possible. If it gets to the level of decamping, why not?
