Meroyi dumps ACN

ANOTHER governorship aspirant of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in Ondo State, Senator Omololu Meroyi has dumped the party for the PDP over what he described as lack of focus on the part of its leadership.

Senator Meroyi who was in the National Assembly between 1999 and 2003 represented Ondo South senatorial district area of the state.

Addressing newsmen in Akure Meroyi described the ACN as a “sinking ship, which has no chance of winning the October 20 governorship election in the state.

He pooh-poohed the regional integration of the southwest geo-political zone being championed by the ACN.

But the Director of Publicity of the A C N Rotimi Agbede described the defection of Meroyi to PDP as a good riddance to bad rubbish, saying that Meroyi was a spent bullet and had no followers.

However, the Senator equally faulted the way and manner the governorship candidate of the party, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu SAN emerged noting that “his emergence has ended the ambition of ACN winning the any election in the state.

Meroyi said he decided to return to the PDP, the party he left in 2007 because of what the National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur and the National Working Committee of the party said that those who left the party and were desirous of returning should do so without hindrance.
