A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, Chief Akinwole Akinwale, (popularly known as Wolekanle), has joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Speaking with newsmen at Osupa Baptist Day School, Ogbomoso, Akinwale, who joined the PDP last week said he was impressed by the performance of Governor Seyi Makinde, adding that he has done better than the APC. He declared that with the performance of the Governor that the APC will die a natural death in the state.
“The government of Oyo State, under the able leadership of Governor Makinde, has done well because it has prioritised governance to suit the different sectors of the state’s economy. He has also taken the needs of both the poor and the rich into consideration.
“If you have a governor that is doing this great job, as a lover of progress, you must support his agenda. And that is why I am joining the PDP because I’m very motivated by the work rate of Governor Makinde and the way he has carrying the youths along in the administration within Ogbomoso and Oyo State.
“The APC did best while in power. But I sat and had a good thought and realised the PDP has done better in many ramifications. What we did today was just for the ward level as the basic and you can see the number. Later, we will move to the local government level. I can say categorically that very soon, you will all see that the PDP will be synonymous with Ogbomoso because the APC will die a natural death in the city and Oyo State” he said.
