A former governor of Ekiti state, Chief Segun Oni, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Oni had contested PDP’s governorship ticket for the June 18 election in the state.
However, the Director of Media in the Segun Oni Campaign Organisation, has now said, “We have just said bye-bye to the PDP and ‘Oga’ (Segun Oni) thanked all the people who worked with him and dissolved all the structures that ran the purported primary in the PDP”.
Oni was defeated by Bisi Kolawole, who is now the PDP candidate, in the party’s governorship primary which held in Ado Ekiti on January 26.
The former PDP governor, who left the party for the APC in 2014, returned in 2019.
Although Ogunsuyi did not disclose the party which Oni was defecting to, insinuations were rife that Oni had concluded arrangement to fly the flag of the All Progressives Grand Alliance for the governorship election.
The former campaign spokesperson said, “What we have now is a confluence of people called Segun Oni Movement. By next week, we should have sorted ourselves out and know where we (party) are going in line with Independent National Electoral Commission timetable”.
