Ahead of the 16th February presidential and National Assembly elections, the National Publicity Secretary of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), Barr Yemi Adetoyinbo, has dumped the party for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Addressing journalists in Akure, the Ondo state capital, the ADP spokesman said he was convinced about programmes of President Muhammadu Buhari led government.
Adetoyinbo, who accused the National Chairman of the party making himself the party’s presidential candidate said the party has been divided beyond redemption.
He urged Nigerians to support President Buhari in his quest to rebuild the country and set it on the path of greatness.
He said: ” Well, I am Nationalist and the fact remains that being the National Publicity Secretary of ADP for the past two years now. Before then I had been the member of APC even from the inception. But I know in Nigeria politics today there is no way you can win the war alone. ADP had been divided, no transparency, the National chairman of the party made himself the presidential candidate of the party, even the welfare of the party members have not been take care of.
“I have been using my own personal money to fund the party in terms of publicity for the past two years now. How would I casting my vote for the party that has been divided and there is no permanent enemy in politics, you can move to any party at anytime as politicians.
“Now that am in APC it is time for me to support the progressive people to move the state and country forward as nationalist. We have been saying it that President Muhammadu Buhari needs to improve and this is the time to support him in any area that it requires to rebuild the country.
“We believe now that if Buhari wins he is going to do what he suppose to do for Nigerians because I have agreed with those that were saying that four years is not enough for Buhari to rebuild the country. People have talked to me to come back to APC in order to join hands with progressives to transform the state and Nigeria as a whole.”
