One of the Senators representing Oyo State at the National Assembly, Mosunmola Sunmonu has clarified that she didn’t defect to the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, as widely reported but she moved to African Democratic Congress, ADC.
Sunmonu revealed to Premium Times in an interview that her defection was to ADC after posting on Facebook to explain reasons why as to why her defection became imperative.
“Today, 24 July 2018, a letter was read during the Senate Plenary announcing the defection of some Senators from the All Progressives Congress (APC),” she wrote on her Facebook page.
“Please be advised that my defection is as a result of issues within the APC Oyo State Chapter. As we know, politics is local and despite the rhetoric, there has been little or no effort at the state level to reconcile differences by incorporating various stakeholders and interests.”
Sunmonu, alongside some other bigwigs of the party in the state are not on good terms with Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi. The group of individuals whose oxen have been gored by the former legislator are said to be under a wing called the “Unity Forum.”
