No fewer than 3,000 members from the main opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Accord Party (AP), Labour Party (LP) and Social Democratic Party (SDP) have decamped to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Olorunsogo Local Government Area of Oyo State.

One of the decampees, a Medical Practitioner and PDP chieftain, Dr. Usman Bolaji Abdulfatai (Ashfau), stated that they resolved to leave their respective parties to join the APC, as a result of what he described as good works of President Muhammadu Buhari in governing the country. He also praised Senator Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State.

Other leaders of the decampees are a retired military officer, Sunday Alabi (old soldier), former secretary to the Local Government, Alhaji Jimoh Olajide (Oroo) and Hon. Seyi Bamikunle.

The decampees were from the ten wards in the council area.

The defectors moved in thousands along the major roads, including; L.A. Primary School Road, Idigba, Ibukun Olu area and Kishi-Ilorin Road at the headquarters of the local government with victory songs. They later assembled at NUD Primary School, Igbeti, for their integration into APC.

President Buhari recently declared that millions of Nigerian would soon join the APC in order to record success for the party in the forthcoming general elections.

But, the National Chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, had berated Buhari over the statement, saying that the ruling party would soon be empty, adding that those the President rely on would soon leave the APC to join the PDP.

Dr. Abdulfatai, who stated that the defectors moved out of bondage of four political parties, also described the parties as moribund and noted that the achievements of APC in Oyo State nay Nigeria have silenced their former parties’ leader.

He urged other politicians in the four parties to join the APC for the betterment of the country and her citizens.

Also speaking, Seyi Bamikunle and Sunday Alabi disclosed that leaving their various parties was necessitated by the lack of focus, vision and internal democracy within those parties.

Earlier, the leader of the ruling party in the council area, Dr. Ahmed Ayinla, while receiving the decampees on behalf of the State Chairman of the party, Chief Akin Oke, noted that the event was remarkable for the APC members and loyalists in the area and Oyo State in general, promising the new members that their interest would be jealously protected and that they would not regret their joining the APC.

He saluted the courage of the decampees to take the bull by the horn in dumping their former parties to join “the progressive party for building of new Nigeria.”

He urged the new and old members to work as a team for the success of the party in the future elections.

Other APC leaders who received the defectors were; Former Secretary to the  Local Government, Hon. Festus Adediran, APC Chairman in the Local Government, Mr. Idowu  Abdulwaheed,  First Council Chairman of the area, Mr. Azeez Akanji and Alhaja Oyinade.
