Seven members of the Ogun House of Assembly has defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), having resigned their membership of the Allied People’s Movement (APM).

The lawmakers took the decisions in separate letters read by the Speaker of the Assembly, Olakunle Oluomo, during a plenary in Abeokuta, on Thursday.

The defectors are; former Governor, Ibikunle Amosun’s nephew, Yusuf Amosun (Ewekoro constituency); the Minority Leader, Ganiyu Oyedeji (Ifo 11), Musefiu Lamidi (Ado Odo Ota 11); Sikiratu Ajibola (Ipokia), Bolanle Ajayi (Yewa South), Adeniran Ademola (Sagamu 11) and Modupe Mujota-Onikepo (Abeokuta North).

The lawmakers said in their letters that they decided to join the APC after due consultations with their leaders and supporters.

In his response, the speaker congratulated them for joining the ruling party, saying it was important to come together to provide improved service to the state.

Oluomo appealed to other minority members in the House to also take the bold step and join the ruling party.

With the defection, APC now has 22 out 26 members in the House; Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has one, while the African Democratic Congress (ADC) has three members.
