Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State today said that the birth of the All Progressive Congress (APC) had signified a red card for the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Nigeria.
Besides, he said that the coming of APC also signified an end to poverty, corruption, violence and other omen which the ruling PDP represents in the country.
Senator Ajimobi stated this at the lowering of flags by erstwhile parties which made up the newly formed party to usher in the new party.
He also congratulated the people of Oyo State for their support and cooperation with his government, stressing that with the coming up of APC, they should expect more development in the state.
Governor Ajimobi urged members of the three merging parties to eschew rancor and bitterness but rather work together to ensure success for the new party in all future elections.
