The Senator representing Oyo South in the National Assembly, Adesoji Akanbi, has reportedly dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in Oyo State and joined the African Democratic Congress (ADC), DAILY POST reports.
Akanbi, who was elected in 2015, registered himself as a member of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) at his Ibadan North West Local Government Area on Thursday.
Akanbi, DAILY POST gathered decided to leave the APC following the insistence of Governor Abiola Ajimobi of the state to return to the Senate where he left in 2007.
The lawmaker was a member of the House of Representative during the aborted third republic.
He had written a letter to Ajimobi as a way to persuade the governor to allow him go for another term in the red chamber.
Akanbi in the two-page letter entitled “Request for guidance/directive on my next political move”, dated 28th August, 2018, a copy which was obtained by DAILY POST on Saturday, said he wrote the letter in order to honour the governor, being the leader of the party and to seek his favour to have second term ticket to the red chamber under APC.
