Thousands of Supporters of Raufu Olaniyan the recently impeached deputy to Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo State, have defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Iseyin local government.

They stated this on Tuesday when Teslim Folarin, governorship candidate of the APC and Olaniyan visited the ancient town together with other top chieftains of the party.

Lateef Kolawole, a former chairman of Iseyin local government, who led the members of the PDP who are loyalists of Olaniyan in the council area to the APC, assured the leadership of APC of their support to ensure victory of APC in 2023 general elections.
