Shuaib Oyedokun, the former National Deputy Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dumped Governor Ademola Adeleke to join All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State. 

Ekiti News reports that Oyedokun, who is also a member of the Board of Trustees and founding member of PDP, defected with some chieftains of the party, including Prince Dotun Babayemi. 

Oyedokun’s decision was disclosed in a letter dated May 16th 2024 to the leadership of PDP through the Ward 13 Chairman to Local, State and National Secretariat.

The letter reads in part, He stated: “As a functional member and leader of PDP (Ward 13, Jagun/ Osi-Bale Ode, Odo-Otin South Local Government, Osun State,) whose high electoral productivity and value have been credibly and positively acknowledged in my ward, across the local council, state and country-wide for the enhancement of the fortune of the PDP, I have the honour (though with pain) in announcing the renunciation of my membership of the party on principle, having observed that the ideals of we, founding members, had been sorely contaminated.

“In taking this step which is not even without due consultation with my teaming loyalists in the PDP, I have consequently decided to shift my allegiance to the All Progressives Congress (APC) where I believe my experience, efforts and leadership roles would be valued and appreciated. I thank you.”
