He asked the decampees to work assiduously as the country’s is preparing for the 2023 general election, noting that PDP stand a better chance of winning the forthcoming elections as Nigerians were tired of APC.

Leading the decampees from Action Democratic Party, the State Chairman of the party, Alhaji Sule Oderinde said the structure of the party has been collapsed to the PDP, saying the new merger will no doubt add values to the party.

” My defecting to the People’s Democratic Party is more of home coming because I was one of the foundation members of the party. I want to be part of the people that will rescue Nigeria from the claw of the ruling party”.

In the same vein, Prince Foluso Mayowa Adefemi said the only party with capacity to rescue the nation is the People’s Democratic Party, noting that the umbrella of the party is big to accommodate every progressive minded person that wants good for Nigeria.

He said his defection is the beginning of new things to come in Ondo State, saying he joined the party to contribute his best quota to the political spectrum of the state and also to add value to already existing structure on ground.

” We are not politicians that will promise what they can’t fulfill; I am very committed to PDP as we have collapsed the structure of ADP to PDP. This is a sincere merger and we are looking forward to a robust relationship in our new party”.

Prince Foluso assured his supporters of inclusiveness and constructive engagements, saying he will continue to build humanity and make his people self reliance and independent.
