PDP members in Kwara, led by the state chairman, Iyiola Oyedepo, on Wednesday announced their defection to APC.

Scores of Kwara residents, especially those from Ilorin metropolis, including some PDP members, yesterday protested against what they described as “the political leadership of Saraki.

The protesters who marched along some streets in Ilorin lambasted Saraki and the Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed.

They carried placards with different inscriptions condemning what they referred to as “bad governance,” “political hegemony” and “under-development” under Saraki’s political leadership.

Rex Olawoye, the erstwhile Publicity Secretary of the party said PDP members in the state could not work with him.

Olawoye said with the defection, all political structures of the PDP at the ward, local government and state levels had moved to the APC.
