… describes defection as tactics to ‘steal’ FG appointment
… GNI on his own – ADC chair
Mixed reactions are currently trailing the defection of the Governorship Candidate of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, during the last gubernatorial election, Gboyega Isiaka, into the ruling All Progressives Congress.
While some seems happy with the development, other quarters of the APC aren’t welcoming the ADC bigwig to the party over alleged plan to ‘steal’ federal appointment.
A preliminary investigation by PLATFORM TIMES shows that Isiaka’s defection has split the strength of the ADC in Imeko afon local government as many of the party members refused to defect with the gubernatorial candidate.
During a random interview with some APC party faithful, members complained, saying the defection was planned to muzzle original members of the party and also to secure federal appointments.
An immediate past Councilor at ward 11 in Abeokuta South, Hon. Ali Ekundayo accused Isiaka of selfishness saying he his defecting out of his personal selfishness with the sole aim of securing a federal appointment.
“He has defected out of his personal selfishness with the main focus of securing federal appointments meant for party faithful “.
” You can’t expect me to be happy, after being in this party for five to six years and some people will just come and cart all that we have worked for away. Well, let wait and see, if God will allow them .”
Another member, Aina Jaji also said, ” I am not perturbed if this is happening now , it only tells us who our people are morally.
“After contesting three times in other Party, he is now back to APC? What an aberration but let wait and see ”
It was however gathered that many members of the ADC including the only House of representatives member, Hon. Olaifa Aremu and other House of Assembly members delivered by the party refused to defect with Isiaka
While asking Isiaka’s ward Chairman,Olaleye Amuda, if he has also defected with Isiaka ? Amuda who spoke in Yoruba vehemently said, ” I didn’t defect to anywhere, As I speak I am still in Imeko. Isiaka told me he will be defecting and I told him bluntly and I won’t be defecting with him.
” Even if I want to defect to APC, I will sought another better person’s link and not through him. I have followed him three times and I have stopped. If one will walk with a person, he should work with a better person.
” Not every body here defected with him, people are now very wise and as a result, I have a lot of people who did not defect with him, we are now very wise “.
When contacted, the Caretaker publicity secretary of the APC in the state, Tunde Oladunjoye, refused to respond to question as he said , ” I am busy, I am busy”.
