Labour Party’s only Rep, Ogunwumi defects to APC


Member representing Ogbomosho North/South/Orire Federal Constituency of Oyo State at the House of Representatives, Hon. Segun Ogunwumi, has defected from the Labour Party to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Until his detection, Ogunwumi was the only member of the Labour Party in this assembly.

This was contained in a letter read on the floor of the House on Thursday by the Deputy Speaker, Rt. Hon. Yusuf Lasun who presided over the plenary.

Mr. Ogunwuyi, alluded that his defection was premised upon the rancourous conduct among the leadership of the party, which he claimed had led to the factionalization of the party at national level.

The young lawmaker explained that it was unhealthy for him as a federal legislator, to continue with a party that runs “two parallel executives at the national level”.

The defection of Mr. Ogunwuyi did not receive any objection from the Minority leadership of the House.
