Governor Ademola Adeleke has no plans to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC), the Osun State PDP has said.
In a statement by its Caretaker Chairman, Dr Akindele Adekunle, the rumour of Adeleke’s defection allegedly emanated from the All Progressives Congress and was circulated on social media.
He described the insinuation as a failed distraction agenda, calling on Osun voters to troop out en masse and vote for all the PDP candidates in the state Assembly elections on March 11.

According to the PDP chief, Adeleke remained ever committed to the PDP as evidently demonstrated in the presidential and National Assembly elections, stressing that the PDP would repeat the same feat on March 11 by clearing all the 26 Assembly seats in the state.
“Let me urge the public to discard the rumour of defection. There is no reason for it, especially given the impressive victory he led the PDP to just a few days ago at the presidential and National Assembly elections in the state.
“The Osun APC is badly decimated and is struggling to even find its feet. Governor Adeleke has within 100 days proven that good governance is possible, hence the massive goodwill the PDP currently enjoys across the state. So, voters should ignore the lies from the pit of hell. Governor Adeleke remains a PDP leader and Governor.
