The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has added to their ranks in Ogun State two key members of opposition party, Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, following the defection of Lekan Mustapha, a former Senator and Remi Hassan, a former Deputy Speaker.
The former lawmaker who represented Ogun East Senatorial District at the red chamber dumped was joined by the former Deputy Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly to dump the PDP for APC.
The politicians, on Thursday in Abeokuta, also led thousands of PDP members from the Ogun East Senatorial District of the state into APC.
The stalwarts said they were motivated by the developmental strides of the Governor Ibikunle Amosun led government, which they added, will definitely speak for him in the 2019 polls.
According to Hassan, “politics is about choice of who you relate with, stating that despite being seen as an antagonist of Amosun, he has never questioned his performance.”
He enjoined the governor not to relent till his last days in office, assuring the APC of his support.
On his part Mustapha said “when you have gold, you don’t go about looking for silver. We have gold in the person of Amosun, so there is no need messing around with silver.”
