He tweeted: “Earlier today on the floor of the house of representatives, I announced my defection from the All Progressives Congress to Accord Party.

“After my exit from the APC, we engaged other political parties, we had numerous options, but we opted for Accord for very peculiar reasons. Accord Party happens to be the first party in Oyo State to zone Oyo North Senatorial ticket to Oke Ogun, considering that Ogbomosho Zone had done two terms.
