The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State, Barr. Gboyega Oguntuase, has declared that the present trial of the Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki, by All Progressives Congress-led federal government should teach a lesson that defecting to the ruling party has become a great regret.
Oguntuase, former Commissioner for Information, reminded those planning to dump the party in Ekiti to be aware of the regrets being suffered by party bigwigs that had defected to APC, boasting that this shall be their lot if such dream is realized.
Speaking against the backdrop of the alleged factionalisation of the party in the state, with Mr. Williams Ajayi and a former Senator, Chief Clement Awoyelu, leading a splinter group perceived to be loyal to a Senator from Ogun State, the party boss said his executive won’t
tolerate rebellious actions from members, urging those belonging to the faction to retrace their steps.
Speaking with journalists in Ado Ekiti on Friday, Oguntuase said it is no longer profitable to leave a democratic party like the PDP and defect to the APC, a party he described as too ‘sectional and discriminative’ to accommodate defectors.
