The Oyo State Deputy Chairman of the Labour Party, Mayoress Olubukola Olayinka, on Tuesday, defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), with many of his supporters.
The Deputy Chairman, who unveiled that her official defection came after many consultations with friends, associates, political peers and leaders, noted that she left the LP due to an interior crisis among the leaders in the state.
While proclaiming her defection, Olubukola berated Labour Party leadership in the state as she depicted Atiku as a unifier who has the political experience, capacity and integrity to unite Nigerians.
She said, “In the spirit of sincerity, love and progress, I wish to openly announce my exit and that of my followers from the Labour Party. Hundreds of my followers who believe in my political mentorship and I are also on this noble course.
“As an advocate of peace, whose life is driven by unity of purpose, I have done all my best as the Deputy Chairperson of Labour Party in Oyo State even in the face of sheer persecution, but all went down the drain as some people in the party believed they’re powerful than the political institution with their quisling mentality.
“As a result of this, my people and I have decided to cease our memberships henceforth with immediate effect. We strongly believe that the security of lives and properties of all Nigerians will be better guaranteed under the leadership and Government of Atiku Abubakar.”
