An exodus has occurred in the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) with about 2, 000 members in Lagos, led by Abdulkareem Rafiu, a former security aide to Gov. Babatunde Fashola, moving to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Abdulkareem Rafiu said the PDP is the party that will bring back the dream Lagos. He told PDP members who were at the state party secretariat in Ikeja, where the defectors were formally accepted, that the ACN had not lived up to expectation.
On hand to receive the defectors were PDP top men, including its former National Deputy Chairman, South-West, Olabode George, former governor of Ekiti, Segun Oni, and former Minister of Transport, Ebenezer Babatope.
At the event, George said a PDP-led administration would never disappoint the people of Lagos.
“I am delighted that many people in the ranks of the ACN are now seeing the light,” he said.
Oni also said that by 2015, PDP would form the next government in Lagos State. He called for unity among the party members.
