Defection: What Oyedepo, PDP Chairmen told me about Saraki – Lai Mohammed 

By Haruna Yusuf Abuja  14/8/2018

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has revealed the outcome of his meeting with the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Kwara State.

The Minister said that all the three senatorial district chairmen of the PDP in the state gave him confidence that Saraki’s days in dominating Kwara politics are limited.

Mohammed said that he has received support from the State Chairman of the PDP and party leaders in the three senatorial districts in the state.

The Minister said this while fielding questions from reporters in Lagos on the future of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state following the decamping of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and others to the PDP.

Kwara PDP Chairman, Iyiola Oyedepo and members of the party dumped the party for the APC immediately Saraki and others decamped.

Mohammed said, “To answer your question, I think APC can only go stronger in Kwara State because what we are witnessing today is like a liberation, and from the support I have received so far, including the entire leadership of the party, led by the Chairman, Akogun Oyedepo Iyiola, who met with me and the National Chairman with 17 other leaders, including Prof. Oba Abdulraheem, Sen. S.S. Ajibola, all the three senatorial district chairmen of the PDP in the state, gives me confidence that Saraki’s days in dominating Kwara politics are limited.

“What we have today is some members of the APC decamping to the PDP.

“I say some members because many members have refused to go. But we have gained more from those who say rather than stay in the same party with Saraki, they would rather come to the APC.

“As far as the people of Kwara State are concerned, it was as if finally, the state was being liberated.

“The excitement today in Kwara State is akin to how Nigeria felt on the eve of independence.

“I have received and consulted with delegations. As a matter of fact, I am meeting on the 19th of this month if it is convenient for me with about 200 leaders of Kwara PDP, ranging from a former speaker in the Second Republic to community leaders across the state.”
