No fewer than 6,000 members of the All Progressives Congress
(APC) in Idanre local government area of Ondo State on Thursday, October 13, 2016 defected to the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)

The defectors claimed that their decision to dump the All
Progressives Congress(APC) was as a result of their love for the candidate of
the PDP, Mr Eyitayo Jegede.
The new PDP members also promised to support Jegede in his
desire to rule the state, even as they declared their readiness to work for the
PDP ahead of the poll.
The defectors from APC led by Mr Adebowale Olowoeye said the
APC candidate, Chief Rotimi Akeredolu was not a popular candidate to win the
In his Ofosu Onisere ward alone, Olowoeye led 86 former
members of the APC to the PDP.
The defectors from Ala ward in the same local government
area numbering over 1000 were led to their new party by  Bidemi Oladapo reputed to be one of the most
influential members of the APC in the area.
Abayomi Akinsolie said they took the action as the “Eyitayo
Jegede’s wind blowing across the state is too real to be ignored.”

Ebonyi, Kwara and Osun natives who are apolitical but resident in the area took
turns to declare support for PDP and its standard bearer, Jegede.
Artisans, mainly fashion designers also took turns to
declare for the PDP and its candidate on the occasion.
Receiving the defectors, the 
state Governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko thanked them for their decision to
join hands with true progressives to ensure that the state maintains its model
Represented by his Chief of Staff, Dr Kola Ademujimi, Mimiko said  the support given his government by the
people of the area is commendable, adding that there are enough signs on ground
to suggest that they will extend 
their unfettered support for him to the PDP candidate.
