Makinde’s deputy dumps PDP for APC

Makinde presents 2023 budget Thursday


The deputy governor of Oyo State, Raufu Olaniyan has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party and defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress.

According to The PUNCH, the announcement of his defection from the PDP was made in his private office, Ojoo, Ibadan, while addressing journalists.

His announcement came after weeks of speculations that he was going to leave the party because of the frosty relationship between him and his boss, Governor Seyi Makinde.

There were reports on Thursday that Makinde had dropped Olaniyan as his running mate for the 2023 governorship poll but no official statement had been issued to that effect.
