New Ondo Speaker, Bamidele Oleyelogun defects to APC

The newly-elected Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Mr Bamidele Oleyelogun, representing Ifedore Constituency, has decamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Oleyelogun was voted as the new speaker of the Assembly after he polled nine out of 13 votes against Mr Olamide George, representing Akure-North, who got four votes.

Oleyelogun, accompanied by some principal officers of the House, made the announcement at a news conference on Monday in Akure.

“We are here today to signify our intention to join the ruling party, APC. The other ceremony will be done tomorrow (Tuesday).

“At the national level, they have factionalised our party. The same scenario is also at the state level. This declaration is for our followers and those we represent.

“We are ready to work with the executive without any problem, and all necessary things to be done are in place. Be rest assured that Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu is ready to work and we are ready to support him,’’ he added.
