Penpushing reports further that, following the development, the former Governor moved to Action Democratic Party (ADP), to secure the governorship ticket, as findings also showed that ,he has remained a force to reckon with in the race for the Agodi Government House in the 2019 election.

It was gathered that, the defection of members of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), was the fallout of crisis rocking the party on who becomes the Governorship Candidate of the party for the election

Penpushing reports that, among the defectors were market women, traders, artisans and youths led by Khalil Mustapha, a State House of Assembly aspirant in Ibadan North Constituency 1.

Speaking with journalists on reason behind the defection, the former African Democratic Congress(ADC) members, Mustapha said that their resolve to join Action Democratic Party(ADP) was due to series of internal crisis that has been rocking the party in the past few months which are yet to be solved.

He declared that, it was glaring that the leadership of African Democratic Congress(ADC) in Oyo State was more interested in their selfish ambition than the overall plight of the masses in the State, thereby resulting in the unending crisis over the sharing of political offices to be contested for in the 2019 general elections.
