Oyetola, accompanied by his deputy, Benedict Alabi; the party chairman, Gboyeha Famodun, welcomed the defectors who were led by former Special Adviser on Strategy and Planning to former Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola, Funmilayo Olasheinde Mustapha.

Other leaders of the APC present at the event are: former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Patricia Etteh, former deputy Governor, Senator Iyiola Omisore, Senate’s spokesperson, Senator Ajibola Bashiru among others.

Funmilayo, who was a former member Osun State House of Assembly under the PDP and a former council chairman, led her supporters from the Ila Federal Constituency, comprising Ila, Boluwaduro and Ifedayo and other seven councils.

According to her, she left PDP because of a protracted crisis facing the party.

Funmilayo cited Governor Oyetola’s achievements in three years despite the financial challenges, which according to her were worthy of emulation.

She pointed out that a party that could not fix its challenges could certainly not fix that of the state.
