No fewer than 5,000 people from different parties in Kwara South Senatorial District on Saturday defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) at a rally in Omu-Aran, Kwara.
The decampees, majorly from the Peoples Democratic Party,(PDP), were received and presented with their membership cards at the APC campaign flag-off in respect of Ekiti/Irepodun/Isin/Oke-Ero Federal Constituency in the 2019 general elections.
According to them, only the APC at all levels of governance could help to actualise our yearnings and aspirations.
“Any reasonable person or politician must know the right time to stay or quit and as far as I’m concerned the APC by every standard represents the best interest of Nigerian people.
“I have the conviction that in any free, fair and credible election in Nigeria like the recently concluded by-election in the state, the APC will always come out victorious,’’ he said.
“We still stand by our promise to the electorate before our victory in the last by-election that we are going to do things differently as way of impacting positively on our people.
