JUST IN; Former PDP Chairman dumps Party decamps to APC, says he’s going to Abuja to prostrate for Tinubu
A Peoples Democratic Party chieftain and former Chairman of the party   in Lagos  State ,Chief  Segun Adewale ,says he is dumping his party to join the All Progressives Congress(APC).
Adewale ,popularly known as Aeroland, said this at a news conference on Saturday in Lagos.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the PDP in Alimosho Local Government Area of the state had last week  suspended Adewale indefinitely.
Adewale, whose political base is Alimosho, was suspended for allegedly causing disaffection in PDP and tarnishing the party’s image.
The ex-PDP chairman, before his suspension, had earlier attributed the failure of the party to win elections in the state since 1999 to corruption and disunity among party members.
Speaking at the news conference,Adewale said that he was not moving to APC  to contest election in  2027, but  contribute to  President Bola Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda
“I am not contesting election in 2027, but going to the ruling party to support the president. My next move is to go to Abuja and prostrate to Tinubu”,he said.
Reacting to his suspension, Adewale said his reported suspension by PDP in Alimosho LGA was orchestrated by those fighting him  for exposing how they  mismanaged campaign funds during the  2023 election.
Adewale said  his suspension had no effect as his ward had absolute confidence in him and had distanced itself from the reported suspension.
Adewale said it was laughable that” these same elements being used would act unconstitutionally by suspending me  from the party when they do not have such powers”.
He said: “Instead of my party LGA to take up Bode George and his gang, they  alleged  that I was the one that stole the money meant for electioneering,money that  was not given to me in the first place.
“They said because of that, I should be suspended and I told them to come to my ward to suspend me so I can join the APC.
“What am I even doing in the party?I spent millions of money during elections, but at the end of the day it isn’t worth it.
“I am not even in PDP anymore because I have seen it all and I would not have stayed in PDP till now, but for Atiku Abubakar that begged me to contest in 2023.”he said.
Adewale noted that he was going to APC to protect his business and  the political structure he had built over the years.
He said a particular  bank called him that he was politically exposed ,adding  what that meant was that   he could not  even go to the bank to borrow money just because he was affiliated to PDP.
Adewale said the people he supported during the last elections in PDP  had moved to the ruling party, becoming  commissioners and lawmakers. (NAN)
