No discrimination in APC, you have equal rights, Oyetola assures Osun PDP defectors

Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola, has assured members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who recently defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State of equal rights and opportunities in the party’s scheme of things.
Chieftains of the opposition PDP in Ede, Mr. Adebowale Azim from Ede-North and  Mr. Raji Taoheed Sijuade from Ede-South had last week led other chieftains and members of the party to the APC. They attributed their defection to the good governance and purposeful leadership exhibited by the Administration of Governor Oyetola in the last two and half years.
Receiving the decampees at the Government House, Osogbo, on Sunday, Oyetola was quoted in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan, on Monday, as saying that their defection was a testament to the Administration’s purposeful leadership and an affirmation that the people of the State were solidly behind his government and the APC.

He expressed delight at the bold step taken by the defectors in view of the palpable political circumstance that would have prevented them from doing so.
The Governor also tasked APC members and loyalists across the nation, particularly in Osun, on the need to brace up to the present challenges of entrenching the party to continuously wax stronger, by working in unison as one family and a united entity.
Oyetola, who reaffirmed his Administration’s commitment to continuously extend hands of fellowship to all, assured the new members of equal rights and opportunities in the scheme of things.
He urged them to commence internal work for the party as elections are fast approaching.
“Please, don’t see yourselves as new members. Do everything possible to advance the party. I assure you that there is no discrimination in our party; we are one big family. This is what I want you to continue to do,” he added.
In their separate remarks, the two major figures among the defectors, Mr. Adebowale Azim and Raji Taoheed Sijuade, said the performance and achievements of Governor Oyetola attracted them to the APC.
According to them, their defection was voluntary as they were convinced by the achievements recorded by the Oyetola Administration in the last two and half years, particularly in Ede.
