Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) could now be said to be the only political party in the state.
Mr Abiodun said this on Tuesday while receiving into the party thousands of members from African Democratic Congress (ADC) led by its governorship candidate during the 2019 general elections, Gboyega Isiaka.
Some members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state led by the former Ogun deputy governor Salmot Badru, also defected to the APC at the event held at Ake in Abeokuta.
The governor, who congratulated the defectors, assured them that they would not be discriminated against in the party as the state was set to achieve greatness.
He promised that in spite of filling some positions in government, there were still some positions left behind for those that just joined the party.
“We still have some positions in place for those that joined us, everyone should have a sense of belonging. I greet you all from Ogun East, West and Central Senatorial Districts.
“There should be no discrimination, we should start ward meetings, politics have started, we are going to join hands to build the future of Ogun together. We are all one and the same,” he said.
He commended the efforts of the party’s national chairman, Adams Oshiomohle, describing him as a leader who believes in unity and progress.
