Governor of Oyo State today boasted that the new formed All Progressive Congress would take over Nigeria through a democratic process.
He also called on stakeholders and other progressive-minded people to join hands with ruling APC to move the country forward.
The governor told a mammoth crowd of members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Accord Party from the Oke Ogun area of the state who defected into the party.
The defectors, who were from all the 10 local government areas that constitute Oke Ogun axis of the state, hinged their decision to join ACN on the good governance being delivered by the Governor Abiola Ajimobi-led administration and its sincerity and commitment to the transformation of the state.
While receiving the decampees at the Basketball pitch of the Lekan Salami Sports Complex, Adamasingba amidst singing and dancing, Governor Ajimobi commended them for their courage and determination to join the ACN, saying it was a demonstration of their appreciation of the party’s achievements in the state.
He assured the new entrants that they would be given equal treatment like the old members, urging them not to exercise any fear of being treated by anybody as strangers in ACN.
Governor Ajimobi, who said that the ACN-led administration in the state would not engage in politics of bitterness, bickering and character assassination, stated that the party would continue to receive new members into the party to make it stronger and more formidable for future elections.
In his remarks, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Political Matters, Alhaji Fatai Ibikunle said that the defectors were motivated by the performance of Governor Ajimobi, assuring them of equal and fair treatment.
The representatives of the decampees led by Hon. Tajudeen Badmus lauded the governor for his laudable achievements, adding that he had achieved within two years what others failed to achieve throughout their tenure.
They also pledged their support for Governor Ajimobi in his resolve to transform the state and make life worth living for the people.
