A former House of Representatives candidate on the platform of Accord Party (AP) for Ibadan North West/ Ibadan South West, Chief Adegboyega Taofeek Adegoke, has announced his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
It was gathered that Adegoke, who is the Ajia Balogun of Olubadan, contested on the platform of AP in 2011.
It was gathered that Adegoke was one of those who worked for the victory of Governor Seyi Makinde of the state under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019.
Adegoke has, however, announced his movement to APC.
He said that his defection was done after a series of consultation with his political associates, leaders and supporters across the 33 local government areas of Oyo state.
Adegoke, made the announcement on Sunday while addressing his supporters who throng to his office at Oke Ado, Ibadan.
He said that he has joined APC and remains fully a member of APC in the State.
Adegoke said, “A few days ago there was a fake news story that I, Adegboyega Taofeek Adegoke has decided to stay back in the PDP.
“Nothing could be far from the truth. I am in APC 100 per cent and will remain in APC.
“Please disregard any rumors or fake news. Just be calm, there is no cause for alarm as victory is certain by His Grace”.
