Ahead of Ekiti State governorships election, a top member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ekiti State, Mr Ayo Ogunlade, has defected to the Action Democratic Party (ADP).
Ogunlade who announced this on Saturday in Ado-Ekiti while addressing newsmen, said he had defected and also picked a form to contest the seat of the Ekiti North Federal Constituency 1 at the National Assembly on the platform of ADP.
He said he joined ADP due to the rare leadership value and skills noticed in the person of Mrs Kemi Elebute-Halle, the party’s Governorship candidate.
Receiving the defector, ADP executives welcomed Ogunlade and said he would not be treated like a new comer but equal with all members.
Also, the ADP governorship candidate, Mrs Elebute-Halle said the presence of Ogunlade in the party is a plus and sign of victory.
She urged people to continue to support her ambition with a promise to make the state better.
