Three members of the Oyo State House of Assembly on Tuesday announced their defections from their various political parties to join a former governor of the state, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala in the African Democratic Congress (ADC).
This was disclosed through a letter read by the Deputy Clerk of the House, Mrs. Felicia Foluke Oyediran during the house plenary on Tuesday. In the letter, Hon. Kehinde Oloya (Ibadan North East 1) announced his decision to dump the Accord Party (AP) for the Action Democratic Party (ADP), while Hon. Safiu Olalere (Ido) and Hon Wumi Oladeji (Ogbomoso North) defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the ADP.
Recall that Alao-Akala had last week announced his defection from the ruling APC to the ADP. In another development, a motion on the urgent need to curb the menace of begging by underaged children on major streets in the state was also moved by Hon. Fatai Adesina during the plenary.
