Saraki Regreting Defection To APC
The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State, Barrister Gboyega Oguntuase, has declared that the present trial of the Sen­ate President, Senator Bukola Saraki by the All Progressives Congress-led federal govern­ment was an indication that all is not well with defectors from PDP to the ruling party.

Oguntuase, former Com­missioner for Information, reminded those planning to dump the party in Ekiti State not to lose sight of the re­grets being suffered by party bigwigs that had defected to APC, noting that this shall be their lots if they take the plunge.

Speaking against the back­drop of the alleged factionali­sation of the party in the state, with Mr. Williams Ajayi and a former Senator, Chief Clem­ent Awoyelu leading a splinter group perceived to be loyal to a Senator from Ogun State, the party boss said his execu­tive won’t tolerate rebellious actions from members, urg­ing those belonging to the fac­tion to retrace their steps.

Saraki is presently being tried by the federal govern­ment for alleged forgery of the Senate Standing Rules through which he was elected into office and for alleged false assets’ declaration at the Code of Conduct Tribunal while serving as the governor of Kwara State.

Speaking with journal­ists in Ado Ekiti on Friday, Oguntuase said it is no longer profitable to leave a demo­cratic party like the PDP and defect to the APC, a party he described as too ‘sectional and discriminative’ to accommo­date defectors.

The Chairman also dis­proved the wide spread insin­uation that the party executive was being tele guided and out rightly subsumed by Gover­nor Ayodele Fayose.
