KOGI State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has debunked reports that a former Chairman of Senate Committee on Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Senator Smart Adeyemi, is about to defect to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
This came as the Coordinator of Senator Smart Adeyemi Campaign Organisation Mr. Fehinti Dada, insisted that all is set for Adeyemi’s defection.
A statement by Messrs Idris Imran and I.O Obanishe, Chairman and Secretary of the party in Ijumu Local Government Area of the state said Adeyemi remained a strong pillar of the PDP in Kogi.
They noted that irrespective of the defection of the former lawmaker’s supporters to the APC, the latter would not be swayed to dump the PDP.
The PDP chieftains further said that Adeyemi invested more than any chieftain of the PDP in the state, and was not in a hurry to abandon his investment.
‘’Adeyemi cannot and will not leave his investment and supporters behind to join the APC for no reason because he is noted for peace, progress and development,” the statement added.
