The Deputy Chief of Staff to Governor ‘Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Chief Ademola Ojo has said that he left the crisis-ridden All Progressives Congress (APC) about four months ago, to support Makinde’s visionary government in Oyo State.
Ojo, who made this known in a statement made available to newsmen in Ibadan on Monday, had reacted to his purported expulsion by the APC after he left the party.
He alleged the party of picking Ajibola Muraina (Rep. APC-Ibarapa Central/North) weeks after he joined the party without any primaries in the constituency, adding that he willingly left the APC over four months ago having realised the need to support Makinde’s unprecedented achievements in the state.
The former Ibarapa Central Council boss stated that the recent announcement made by the APC that he alongside two others were expelled, had shown that the APC is confused.
In his words: “The announcement of this expulsion by the APC, months after I defected to the PDP, had shown the stuff they were made off. It showed the APC is confused”.
He said that every relevant and reasonable politician had since joined the PDP which he described as, undoubtedly the winning party in the state.
Ojo said that the Makinde administration in Oyo State has achieved unprecedented feat in all sectors of the economy, saying only enemies of progress would oppose his second term.
“I can confirm that APC is confused. Why is the APC just coming out to pronounce my expulsion, four months after I left the party and already working for Gov. ‘Seyi Makinde as Deputy Chief of Staff?
“Is Muraina just waking up from his slumber? I thought he has people who will win the forthcoming election for him. We shall all witness how he would be ridiculed this time around.
“Muraina is a shameless politician. He was elected four years ago under PDP. He defected two months ago to APC and now talking about expulsion,” he said.
In the meantime, Ojo has urged the people of Ibarapa Central and North Constituency to reject Muraina at the polls in the spirit of their unborn children.
