As defection continues to rock the All progressive congress APC, twenty three out of the twenty four members of the Kwara State House of Assembly have defected to the People Democratic party, PDP.
The honourable member representing Ojomu / balogun constituency in Offa local government, Said Popoola remains the only member that stayed back in APC.
Speaking with journalists after the defection exercise, honourable Popoola attributed his decision to stay in APC to the directive by his constituency members.
Reading his letter that detailed the defection purposes, the speaker of the house Right honourable Ali Ahmad said APC cannot lead Nigerians out of the challenges confronting the nation.
According to the speaker, the use of institutions such as police and anti-corruption agencies for the harassment and intimidation of perceived opponents of people in power since APC assumed power has dealt a heavy blow to governance.
Ahmad who lamented that there is spate of disobedient to court rulings noted that the current government has redefined governance as government of cabal by the cabal and for the cabal. The speaker said he is happy that he is leaving the APC for good, adding that he wished he was never a member of the party.
