It was learnt that a lot of the members belonging to the All Progressives Congress have defected to the ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in Ondo State.

Speaking with the defectors, they said their decision was as a result of the economic situation of the country as well as the bad name of the APC in Akure-North Local Government Area of the state.

This was made known in a statement by the Commissioner for Information, Akinmade Kayode, who received the defectors on behalf of the State Governor, Olusegun Mimiko

According to one of the defectors Joseph Owolagba, said,“It has become glaring that it will be difficult for any party to meet or surpass the achievements of the PDP government in the state.

“The hardship in the country is becoming unbearable. The prices of commodities have soared beyond the reach of the common man.”
