She said: “Our decision to decamp from the APC in the state to a peaceful political party that wants a better Nigeria, PDP, has to do with many reasons.
“Also, our decision to dump the APC was done with deep consultation among its political followers both from Osi Ward one and two.
“I appreciate my political team, and I’m using this medium to pledge our total support to the leadership of Dr. Bukola Saraki.”
Receiving the defectors, a member of Board of Trustees (BoT) of PDP in the state, Mrs. Felicia Ebun Owolabi, commended the defectors for deeming it fit to join the PDP in the state.

She also charged the newly elected party executives at ward, LGA, and state level to work together as a team to woo more members to the PDP.
