Three-time governorship candidate in Ogun State, Prince Gboyega Isiaka, will on Tuesday formally defect to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Isiaka, who was the governorship candidate of African Democratic Congress (ADC) in the 2019 elections, will be received into the APC by Governor Dapo Abiodun.

Some leading politicians in the ADC and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will also declare for the APC on same day.
The Publicity Secretary, APC Caretaker Committee, Tunde Oladunjoye, who confirmed the defection in a statement on Sunday, said the event would hold at the Ake Palace Ground, Abeokuta.

Oladunjoye said the political big wigs and thousands of their followers from the 20 local government areas of the state would move into the ruling party.
According to him, the impending defection was in line with the governor’s policy of inclusiveness.

He said: “Among the top politicians moving into the APC are the former Deputy Governor, Alhaja Salmot Badru, the gubernatorial candidate of the Action Democratic Congress (ADC) in the last governorship election, Prince Gboyega Isiaka, two-term member  of House of Representatives, Apostle Dave Salako, former Chairman of PDP and former Secretary of PDP in Ogun State, Chief Joju Fadairo and Chief Pegba Otemolu respectively.

“Others are Chief (Mrs) Iyabode Apampa, former Commissioner for Forestry, Alhaji Ali Ajibode, former Commissioner for Works, Hon. Olayiwola Waliu Taiwo, former Commissioner for Rural Development, Otunba Fatai Sowemimo, Olootu Dipo Sofowora, and many other leaders.

“It would be recalled that Governor Dapo Abiodun since his inauguration has insisted on and continued to run an inclusive government involving politicians of various political parties and technocrats.”
