My Decision To Join PDP Is For Devt Of Ogun State - Akinlade

ABEOKUTA - Hon. Adekunle Akinlade has disclosed that his decision to dump the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ogun state for the People's Democratic Party (PDP) was for the development of the state.

Akinlade who contested the last All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary in Ogun State noted that the ruling party under Prince Dapo Abiodun-led administration has lost grip of governance with the rising cases of kidnapping, killings, cult activities among others in the state.

He maintained that, his decision to defect to PDP was not easy task, stressing that it became necessary to change the cause of trajectory come 2023.

"Mr. Chairman, I must confess that this decision is not taken easily. I want you to know that it might not be the most popular decision to take, but I believe it is absolutely necessary.

"The way we find ourselves in Ogun State, the next administration in Ogun State means that every sensible indigene of this state must be able to make sacrifice , must be ready to do whatever it takes to change the course of the trajectory  in Ogun State come 2023.

"In 2019, I was the Governorship candidate of this State under APM, and my brother of this great Party, PDP stood by me and it reflected in the result of that election.

"We all know what happened, but Alhamdulillah, we are here today. Today I am here not only to reciprocate but to say a big thank you for the confidence you gave me in 2019 and to assure you that we will do everything we can, to make sure that this party becomes victorious come 2023.

"We will work morning and afternoon, we have done it before under 90days, now we have seven months to do this. Like I said , this wasn't an easy decision but for the development of Ogun State, for the progression of what is happening, things are falling apart, the state is failing, people are being killed, cultism has taken over, I believe without any doubt that under the leadership of my principal, Hon. Ladi Adebutu will restore peace back to the state, the economy of our state will be rebuild inshallah. I assure you my full loyalty that I will stand by you. As the Deputy Governor, I'll serve this state and I will serve you and support you to make sure you succeed."
