Ondo Crisis: Oke's Defection to the Alliance for Democracy Divides Party

Olusola Oke
Ondo Gubernatorial aspirant, Olusola Oke who decamped to the Alliance for Democracy to fulfill his political ambition has been rejected by a section of the party.The defection of Chief  Olusola Oke from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Alliance for Democracy (AD), is stoking crisis in his new party.

While members of the state executive of the AD insist that Oke has fulfiled all conditions to qualify him as the party candidate, the Youth wing of the party has disowned him.
Oke has been fondly criticised in Ondo for selfishly using political parties for his own private interest which could be attributed to his act of 'political prostitution'.

The youths under the aegis of the  Alliance for Democracy, AD, Youth Vanguard, OADYV insisted that Akin Olowookere remained the party’s candidate for the election.

Olowookere was elected over a month ago as the party’s candidate and was in that position until Oke defected and Olowookere stepped down for him according to the Vanguard.

The youths in a statement signed by Arowosafe Oladeji, Adenike Oluwadarasimi, and Ojo Oluseyi Taki insisted that Dr Olowookere remained the party’s candidate. They said in a statement issued yesterday that they were not involved in the process that led to his replacement with Oke.

The statement read: “It filtered to our hearing lately that our lawful mandate freely given to Dr. Akin Olowokere has been turned to a commodity and purportedly traded off to Chief Olusola Oke.

Considering the effect of this ignoble action on our party which is gradually picking its pieces together in our Sunshine state, we will, to the best of our ability and capacity, all known legal means thwart this unfortunate development brought about by the alleged buyer and seller."
