All Progressives Congress, APC, deputy chairman in Osun state, Azeez Adesiji, together with eight other executive members on Monday tendered their resignation letter at the state Capital, and decamped to the Action Democratic Party, ADP, with over 6200 members.
In a joint letter, the nine executive members reeled their reasons for their resignation. Some of their reasons include: “nepotism, impunity and unconcerned attitude of the decision makers in APC.
Part of the letter reads:
” I, Alhaji Azeez Issa Adesiji and other state exco members wish to make it known to you all about our defection into this new, credible, alternative party because of impunity and undemocratic practices witnessed in our former party, the All Progressives Congress, Osun State, which is unbecoming of an acclaimed progressive party.
“Among the 780 local government executives in APC in Osun State, 580 are moving with me the deputy state chairman of the party to our new party, the Action Democratic Party,
“Also, among the 8,632 executives at the ward level in the APC, 5,620 are also joining the train to our new party, Action Democratic Party.”
However, they were received by the state’s chairman of Action Democratic Party, ADP, Toye Akinola, who expressed his gratitude for their mass defection.
