Just In: Ex-Speaker dumps PDP for APC

Bello, a member of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had on Monday resigned his membership of the party.

In his remarks, Gov. Aregbesola commended the former speaker for joining the party, and described the bold action as “right step in the right direction.”

Ahead of September 22 Osun governorship election, Mr. Adejare Bello, a one time Speaker of the State House of Assembly, on Friday defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Bello, a member of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had on Monday resigned his membership of the party.

He was Speaker of the state assembly between 2003 and 2011 on the platform of the PDP.

In a letter addressed to Mr. Soji Adagunodo, the PDP state chairman, the former speaker said that he resigned his membership because the party has drifted from the ideals of its founding fathers.

Bello, however, was received into APC by Gov. Rauf Aregbesola, at its mega rally in Ede on Friday.

The decamped denied the allegation that he received N100 million to defect to APC.

Bello appealed to people of the state to massively vote for Isiaka Adegboyega Oyetola, in the forthcoming gubernatorial election, adding that the APC candidate has better plans for the state.

In his remarks, Gov. Aregbesola commended the former speaker for joining the party, and described the bold action as “right step in the right direction.”

The governor appealed to the people of the state to vote for the party for continuity.

Aregbesola assured the people that the party would not disappoint them if voted again into power.
