Ex Governor of Ekiti State, Segun Oni, has dumped the All Progressives Congress, APC, and moved back to Peoples Democratic Party, PDP
He cited reason for quitting APC on ill treatment meted to him and his supporters.
Oni, said his decision to return to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as a way of acceding to the request of his people, who were desirous of taking the political step.
The former governor, said he had before now met with his counterpart, Ayodele Fayose and the former minority leader of the Party in the senate, Senator Biodun Olujimi on his resolved to moved back to PDP with his supporters.
Oni expressed displeasure on how APC ostracised him and his supporters in APC’s activities, including appointments and privilege to contest elections.
His words: “You all knew the kind of treatment I have been getting. As we speak, none of my supporters was allowed to get an appointment or contest elections in APC.
“If the APC gives me the whole world, I won’t be happy seeing an integral part of my political life, I mean my supporters being treated badly.
“At a particular time, I was suspended in my ward at Ifaki Ekiti and nothing was said about it. I am the Asiwaju of this town, if someone could have the effrontery to do that to me here, you could see it had sent a signal that there was a problem.
“It is not about Segun Oni, my people and supporters are the main issues.”
Also, he said: “We have taken a decision and we are in the process of joining the PDP. We are going to set up an implementation committee to work on our programme of action. Our joining PDP is not something that won’t take three months.
