Defections hit PDP as Akeredolu joins Fayemi’s campaign trail
Huge crowds snarled Dr Kayode Fayemi’s campaign trail yesterday as Governor Rotimi Akeredolu joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in continuation of his visits to parts of Ekiti State selling his manifesto ahead of July 14 ballot.
Fayemi travelled through the maze of hills of Efon and Ekiti South West Local Governments in campaign engagements with stops to address rallies, where he assured supporters that he would restore their hopes after four years of neglect.
Akeredolu joined the rally at Ilawe-Ekiti where huge crowds converged to express their support for Fayemi, who many speakers urged to rescue them from poverty allegedly unleashed on them by Governor Ayodele Fayose’s administration.
As was the case in the communities he had visited so far, defections swept through PDP with hundreds of its leaders and their supporters joining APC.
Among notable members that PDP lost in Efon to APC included a serving member of the House of Representatives, Hon Olamide Oni, and his Personal Assistant, Banjo Filani.
