Ondo: Over 3,000 SDP Members Defect To New Party, APDA

Over 3000 members of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Ondo state led by Yinka Opawole dumped their Party for the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA) party saying that they belonged to the Omoluwabi Platform under which the party’s flag-bearer in the November 2016 governorship election in the state, Dr Olu Agunloye contested.

Leaders of the party who rose from a stakeholders meeting in Akure, the Ondo State capital yesterday, bemoaned the hardship being experienced by Nigerians and blamed it on “inept leadership and downright lack of feelings for the serious economic downturn occasioned by lack of a clear cut economic blueprint by the current government.” The party vowed to take Nigeria out of the woods when it forms government at the centre in 2019.

Speaking at the meeting of the interim executive of the party, a member of the Board of Trustee (BoT) and former Deputy Governor of Ondo, Ambassador Omolade Oluwateru, regretted that Nigerians invested so heavily in the Mohammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) by voting overwhelmingly for the party with the hope that it would provide the needed impetus for a greater Nigeria.

Newly registered political party, the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA) has promised Nigerians a platform that would provide succor and act as a shield against the wheel of poverty currently ravaging the nation.
