Former governorship candidate, Abiodun Akinlade, of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) in the March governorship election in Ogun State, has announced his return to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
This is coming few days after the Supreme Court upheld the election of Dapo Abiodun of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the governor of Ogun State.
Akinlade, who enjoyed the backing of former governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun said on Monday that he is returning to the APC alongside his Supporters.
Akinlade, while addressing his supporters at the APM secretariat in Abeokuta noted that the move became imperative following series of talks with party leaders and other stakeholders on the need to make a return to the party which they all built together.
Akinlade, a former member of the House of Representatives who was welcomed by a mammoth crowd at the APM secretariat told his supporters that the outcome of the legal tussle must be seen as an act of God.
He stated further that: “At the stakeholders meeting which held on Sunday, 22nd of December, 2019 in Abeokuta by leaders, elders and members of our great party, APC, it was agreed that it is time for those of us who left the APC to contest the elections under the platform of Allied People’s Movement (APM) to return to the fold.
“As loyal party members, we accepted and wish to use this opportunity to thank them for allowing us to explore our aspirations even when it came at great political and personal cost. “
