SSG To Aregbesola Dumps APC, Emerges Candidate In New Party

Moshood Adeoti, the Secretary to Osun Government, has resigned his appointment, dumped ruling APC and immediately defected to the Action Democratic Party (ADP).

Adeoti was one of the 17 APC aspirants in the July 19 primary conducted by the party, who's angry.

Adeoti, who announced his withdrawal a day before the primary, eventually scored only 128 votes.

In a letter addressed to Abdulaziz Yari, the Chairman of APC Primaries Committee and governor of Zamfara, Adeoti alleged that he was withdrawing because the primary had been skewed to favour Mr Gboyega Oyetola, the Chief of Staff to Gov. Rauf Aregbesola.

In his acceptance speech after a primary held at the ADP Secretariat on Monday in Osogbo, Adeoti urged the party members to support him in winning the Sept. 22 governorship election.

Adeoti said he was committed to executing the ADP ideals as contained in its manifesto.

He also said he had acquired experience as a “grassroots politicians who had passed through virtually all stages of political leadership as councillor, local government supervisor and party administrator and later Secretary to State Government.

“I present a sober, deep and solid experience critically needed to lead a people-centred and masses-oriented administration as the governor of Osun State."
