The lawmaker representing Oyo Central in The Senate, Senator Monsurat Sunmonu, has officially joined the newly formed African Democratic Congress, ADC.
Sunmonu, a former speaker of the Oyo State House of Assembly, revealed this in a statement released shortly after she joined 14 other senators to defect from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Read statement below:
Today, 24 July 2018, a letter was read during the Senate Plenary announcing the defection of some Senators from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
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.
I hereby declare affiliation with the African Democratic Congress (ADC).
Arise & Shine!
Senator Monsurat Olajumoke Sunmonu
