The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State, has lost one of its two remaining senators, OYO INSIGHT can authoritatively confirm.

Sen. Adesoji Akanbi, who represents Oyo South in the Nigerian Senate this afternoon registered himself as a member of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, at his Ibadan North West local government area.

The APC had in 2015 won all the three senatorial seats in Oyo State. The party lost one of the senators, former speaker Monsurat Sunmonu, who represents Oyo Central to ADC. 

As it stands, APC has only Dr. AbdulFatai Buhari as senator from the state. 

Akanbi, this newspaper had hinted, decided to leave the APC following the insistence of outgoing governor Abiola Ajimobi to return to the Senate where he left in 2007.

Confirming the development to OYO INSIGHT, Akanbi, who is a former House of Representatives’ member said he registered at the party’s Ekotedo secretariat, adding that he would address his constituents through a press conference soon.

OYO INSIGHT learnt that Akanbi had established talks with the leadership of the party weeks back.

Recently, he was said to have met the party’s leaders in the state, which included Chief Rashidi Ladoja, Chief Michael Koleoso, Dr Busari Adebisi and Chief Olayiwola Olakojo.
