Ondo LP members defect to PDP
OVER 1,000 members of the ruling Labour Party (LP) in Ose local government area of Ondo State at the weekend defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The defectors mostly from Ute ward 12 were led by a foundation member of the LP in the area and former Special Assistant (SA) to Governor Olusegun Mimiko, Mr. Ojo Osuma.
Osuma, who is an House of Assembly aspirant, accused the leadership of LP in the state of being autocratic and selfish.
He disclosed that immediately he made his intention known to contest for the House of Assembly next year, some leaders of the party allegedly told him that the slot had already been filled.
He added, “We are no more comfortable with how the ruling party is being administered particularly in Ose local government, because any meeting without the approval of one of the party leaders, Adetokunbo Modupe, a close ally of the governor is null and void.”
