Ex-Ek­iti gov Oni set to leave PDP for APC

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Doyin Ade­busuyi, Ado Ek­iti

For­mer Ek­iti State gover­nor, Se­gun Oni, is set to leave the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) for the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC), a Com­mis­sioner for In­for­ma­tion un­der the for­mer gover­nor, Chief Taiwo Olatu­bosin, told jour­nal­ists in Ado Ek­iti yes­ter­day.

If Oni de­fects, it would be a ma­jor set­back for the PDP as the party pre­pares for the gov­er­nor­ship elec­tion on June 21. Olatu­bo­sun, who dis­closed this on tele­phone, said Oni’s de­ci­sion to join the APC was based on an ur­gent need to save the state from those he called “a band of lo­custs who once plagued it (Ek­iti) and ren­dered hopes des­o­late”.

Ac­cord­ing to Olatun­bo­sun, all ar­range­ments have been con­cluded for the move which he main­tained is in the over­all in­ter­est of Ek­iti people.
