Governor Makinde Welcomes Defecting ZLP Members Into PDP

The Governor of Oyo State, Eng. Seyi Makinde and the Chairman, Governor’s Advisory Council, Senator Hosea Agboola, popularly known as Alleluyah, on Wednesday, received some loyalists of a former Governor of the State, Senator Rashidi Ladoja at the Government House in Ibadan.

The State Chairman of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), Comrade Wole Abisoye, who also was the leader of the coalition political parties that midwifed the electoral victory of the governor in the 2019 election, led the defecting members to pledge their allegiance to Governor Makinde and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Meanwhile, Comrade Abisoye thanked Senator Agboola for facilitating their come back bid to the PDP, noting that he stayed away from the recent meeting of some leaders of ZLP which was spearheaded by the 2019 gubernatorial candidate of the ZLP, Chief Sharafadeen Alli.

He said since Lam Adesina’s day that he has left APC, PDP remains a better home for him to stay.

He also admonished the defecting ZLP members of better times ahead in the PDP.
