PHOTOS: Alao-Akala, Folarin, thousands of others finally dump PDP for APC
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was depleted on Saturday in Ibadan, Oyo State, as the All Progressives Congress (APC) welcomed former Governor of Oyo state, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala, former Senate leader, Senator Teslim Folarin and former Secretary to the State Government, Chief Ayodele Adigun, a member of the House of Representatives, Segun Odebunmi and thousands of others to its fold.
National Leader of the All Progressive Congress, Bola Tinubu, Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun and the host Governor, Abiola Ajimobi were among party leaders who received the new entrants described as bigwigs.
The mammoth crowd that attended the occasion suggests that the ruling party is still very popular with Nigerians.
