The ranks of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has swelled, with a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Think Tank, Femi Aduloju, dumping the ruling party.
Aduloju, Special Assistant on Media to the former state PDP Chairman, Chief Makanjuola Ogundipe, lamented the alleged anti-people policies of the Ayo Fayose administration, which he said had rendered the umbrella party unpopular.
The journalist-turned politician joined the APC at Ado-Ekiti Ward 3 in Idemo, Odo-Ado at the weekend.
Aduloju, who worked with Television Continental (TVC) before his foray into politics, described the APC as a party that is passionate to restore Nigeria to the path of glory.
Aduloju, who was received by party leaders led by the APC Chairman in Ado-Ekiti Local Government Area, Mike Akinleye, revealed that one of the roads inaugurated by Fayose last Friday is an uncompleted project.
Aduloju lamented how the governor had allegedly imposed burdensome taxes on businesses, particularly on pupils in public and private schools.
He also accused him of awarding contracts to his associates, cronies and relations.
Aduloju said: “That is why APC must unite to send PDP packing in 2018. We can’t afford to be in bondage after 2018.
“Ekiti voted for Fayose to develop the state and rather than doing that he decided to place high premium on abusing President Muhammadu Buhari and debasing our value as a people.”
