A Senator representing Oyo South Senatorial District at the upper chamber of the National Assembly, Tobi Akanbi has revealed that his name was mistakenly mentioned as one of the defectors today.
Senator Akanbi stated that the mistake might have been made owing to the ongoing crisis between some lawmakers and the Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi.
While chatting with journalists, Akanbi said; “Initially today, my name was wrongly mentioned in the list of the people that defected to PDP. A point of order was raised. I was able to clear my name that I’ve never been part of defection from APC to PDP. I remain bona fide member of APC.”
He gave journalists a proof when he showed the votes and proceedings of the day to confirm his name is not on the list.
“This is the votes and proceedings of Tuesday 24 July 2018 and my name is not listed on the list of defectors. I remain a bona fide, committed, unrepentant member of APC. I’m here to put the record to order.”
“There is this rumour or speculation when you have ambition, declared or undeclared ambition that you are having crisis in your state with your governor. So, they assumed that having crisis with your governor, automatically (means) you’ll leave the party.
“I am using this medium to say once again that in Oyo State, I don’t have crisis with my governor,” he added.
