The Immediate Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has received thousands of former members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who have now joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State. 

The Decampees which was led by former Lai Mohammed’s aide, Kayode Ogunlowo, received the PDP membership card at Saraki’s residence in Ilorin, the state capital. 

Receiving the decampees, The President of the 8th Senate and the National Leader of the party, Dr Bukola Saraki assured them of equity and fairness in the PDP. 

According to him, “everybody is common to make a member, put your mind at rest, you’re now member of our great party, equal opportunity, equal chances and God will give us the grace to do it.”

“Let me beg you, it is not for us to come here, collect card and start saying we are now a PDP member. Go to  your polling unit, use all the propaganda that you used in 2019 to ensure victory for PDP,” Saraki concluded.

On his part, Kwara state PDP chairman, Rt. Hon. Babatunde Muhammed, asserted that PDP is the only party that can liberate Kwara and Nigeria at large.

He said, “Kwarans expect the person that failed to manage his party properly to manage Kwara, is not done anywhere in the world to give what you don’t have.”

Earlier in an interview with newsmen, Kayode Ogunlowo, said that the decampees where drawn from the 16 local govt of the state.

He described PDP as the only party that can give Nigerians hope and erase sufferings. 

According to him, “Being a minister’s former aid doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be able to take decision and  decide for my political future. Minister happens to be my leader, and as it is, even the minister is not happy with things are happening in Kwara state APC.”

“For the fact that the minister is not happy, all of us are not happy as well, he decided to stay in APC but we can’t stay in APC and actually APC is a party that we built from the scratch, we labor to build the party but we can’t continue to be victimized in the party that we labored for, If the minister decided to continue to endure the victimization in the APC, so be it, but we can’t stand it.”

“As you can see, majority of us have left the party, some left to SDP, while some left to NNPP, while we decided that we are coming to PDP, because we think PDP is the only party that can give us hope, savior, PDP is the only that can give us a accommodation and erase our sufferings.”

Ogunlowo advised the Kwarans come out enmass in 2023 to vote PDP at all levels.

“our people should go back to their ward and polling unit to mobilize people, go out en mass and support PDP, because 2023 election is a movement, we should all go back to our local govt to mobilize our people because there are still thousands of our people in other political party who have lost totally but they are just waiting for who to called them back,” he said.
