#OsunDecides: Ex-speaker Adejare Bello joins APC
A former Speaker of Osun State House of Assembly, Adejare Bello, has joined the All Progressive Congress (APC) after he resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
CAMPUS REPORTER reported the resignation of the former speaker from the PDP on Monday.
Mr Bello, who served in the assembly from 2003 to 2011, said his reason for leaving the PDP was that the party had been allegedly hijacked.
“It is my sincere belief that some elements have hijacked the rudders of the ship of the party and changed its cause to an unknown path which I am not ready to take,” Mr Bello stated in his letter to the Osun PDP chief, Soji Adagunodo.
On Saturday, Mr Bello confirmed to our correspondent that he has joined the APC.
Earlier on Friday, he had participated in his new party’s rally ahead of the September 22 governorship election in Ede, his hometown.
