OGUN, Nigeria – Akeem Amosun, who was the House of Representatives candidate of the Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN) during the last general elections in Ogun State, has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Amosun also led about three thousand supporters to the PDP on Thursday in Abeokuta.
He said his supporters who believed in him followed him to the PDP because they also believed that the party will unseat the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 general election.
During the official declaration held at Isabo area of Abeokuta, Amosun who aspired to represent Abeokuta South Federal Constituency said he found only the PDP worthy to actualise his political ambitions.
He also hinted that he intends to recontest to represent the constituency in 2023.
“We know that the only two main parties we have in the country and they are APC and PDP and we did analysis and we found that the PDP has good leaders we can work with and it also has the chance at the poll in 2023.
”My over three thousand followers and I are dumping ANN for PDP today, all these people you are seeing are my followers, my people, associates and partners.
