My name was wrongly put in the list of defectors, says Oyo Senator Akanbi



The senator representing Oyo South senatorial district, Soji Akanbi has debunked claims that he defected from the All Progressives Congress, APC, to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

This is coming few hours after he was included in the 15 senators that purportedly quit the ruling APC for the PDP. 

Akanbi, who addressed journalists shortly after plenary, on Tuesday, said he remained “a bonafide member of the APC”, adding that his name was wrongly included in the list.

He 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 bonafide member of APC.”

He showed journalists the votes and proceedings of the day to confirm his name was 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 bonafide, committed, unrepentant member of APC. I’m here to put the record to order.”

He added that his name might have been added to the list of defectors because of the crisis in Oyo APC.

“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.
