The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ondo State Chapter says it received reports of some politicians in the party defecting to the APC.
Kennedy Ikantu Peretei, State Publicity Secretary of the PDP in a statement on Monday, noted that the politicians who defected, were never with the party, as they are known for such trade.
The statement read:
“In the last eighteen months, these same characters have moved in and out of the PDP twice, which is a confirmation of their nomadic essence as politicians.
“Most of them who got promotions beyond their capacities by the PDP have consistently lost their Polling Units to other political parties during elections.
“They have always been trailed by failure in their opportunistic and self-serving inordinate ambitions that drive their insatiable desire for crumbs from the master’s table.
“To put the record straight, Banji Okunomo, Solomon Bitire and their gang of court jesters declared that the PDP was dead in Ondo South, shortly after the PDP Governorship primary election in 2020. They defected to the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) but shamelessly returned to PDP after their tragic outing that was a measure of their political relevance.
“In all honesty, why should the PDP lose sleep over the exit of such colourless, inconsequential and serial defectors?
“It won’t be any surprise if they are treated as political prostitutes wherever they may go. Our party can only wish them the best of luck in their sojourn. In any case, any time they wish to come back, our doors are open. Now that they have established that, they are political herdsmen.”
