Ondo 2020: ADC, ZLP leaders join APC

1 Mins read

The defecting ADC leaders, led by Wale Akinlosotu, include all the 22 ward chairmen and 54 local government executive members in Ondo West and East.

Leaders of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Ondo West and East federal constituencies have collapsed the party’s structure into the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the October 10, governorship election.

The move coincided with the resignation of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu’s Senior Special Assistant on Political Matters for Ondo South, Mr. Andrew Ogunsakin.

The defecting ADC leaders, led by Wale Akinlosotu, include all the 22 ward chairmen and 54 local government executive members in Ondo West and East.

They collapsed the ADC structure at an APC campaign rally held in Ondo town.

Speaking at the rally, Akinlosotu said they decided to collapse the ADC structure into that of the APC to ensure a smooth re-election of Governor Akeredolu.

Akinlosotu, who described Akeredolu as a performer, said Ondo East and Ondo West would give him more than 85 per cent votes.

Ondo APC chairman, Engr. Ade Adetimehin, who received the defectors, noted that two of the three political parties in Ondo town had joined forces with the ruling party.

“There are three political parties in Ondo town, the APC, ADC and ZLP. But today, ADC is declaring support for the APC. We are one. This shows that no one can beat the APC in Ondo town,” he said.

On his part, Governor Akeredolu said the continuous support of the people for the APC was an assurance of victory.

Members of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) led by Boro and a retired Permanent Secretary, Adeyemi Adelakun, also joined the APC at the event.
