It was a carnival like event yesterday in Igede Ekiti, Irepodun/Ifelodun Local Government area of Ekiti state as over 200 APC members defected to the People’s Democratic party, PDP.
The decampees, who all adorned themselves with Aso-Ebi said their decision to join the ruling party in Ekiti was borne out of the outstanding performances and leadership qualities of Governor Ayodele Fayose.
Speaking on behalf of the decampees, Mrs Alade said despite the huge debt their party, APC bedeviled Ekiti with, Ekiti State under Fayose is still a hundred percentage better off than Ekiti under Fayemi.
Mrs Alade said continuity is no doubt needed to guarantee sustainability of rapid multifaceted developments, and successes being witnessed in the state, most especially in the education sector, where the state is performing brilliantly, security provision, infrastructure development etc
Welcoming the decampees to the People’s Democratic Party, the Deputy Governor Professor Kolapo Olusola Eleka said All Progressive Congress (APC) is cancerous, adding that it is a party that steals, kills and destroys, warning those who are still in APC to come out of the perpetual darkness they are.
The deputy governor who received the defectors from All progressive Congress to the people Democratic party assured them of fair treatment. Eleka assured them that PDP is the party of equal right, “immediately you become a member, you have same rights as those who have been here before you,” he assured.
He said he was happy with the new members that they have taken a bold step to leave the darkness for light.
“APC is cancerous, it is a party that steals, kills and destroy. I congratulate you today that you have seen the light. APC is darkness and PDP is light, darkness can never overcome light.
“When they were ruling this state, you all know how they ruined our economy, how they plunged us into monumental debt; how they threatened to sack our teachers, and they are still downsizing in the some of the states they are controlling,” Eleka said.
The deputy governor thereafter presented cash gift to the newest members of the PDP and charged them to keep winning over more members for the party.
