The opposition party in Ogun State; the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has announced Adekunle Akinlade, the governorship candidate of the Allied People’s Movement (APM) in the 2019 election in Ogun State as the deputy governorship candidate of the party ahead of next year’s election.
Akinlade, after his defection into the PDP on Friday, was announced as the running mate to Hon. Ladi Adebutu, who won the PDP primary election in Ogun State.
While accepting to run on the same ticket with Adebutu, Akinlade said his decision to join the PDP was for the good of Ogun State.
According to him, the decision was not an easy one to take, but the sacrifice must be made.
“It might not be the most popular decision to take, but I believe it is absolutely necessary. Where we have found ourselves today in Ogun State needs that every sensible indigene of this state must be ready to make sacrifice,” Akinlade said.
It is instructive to note that Akinlade has moved from APC to APM back to APC and then to PDP in the last four years.
