OYO INSIGHT can authoritatively report that Hon. Kehinde Oloya, who is representing Ibadan North East state constituency II for the second consecutive time in the Oyo State House of Assembly decided to remain in Accord due to irreconcilable difference with former governor Rashidi Ladoja.
All the lawmakers elected on the platform of Accord, together with others from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, and Labour Party, LP, yesterday formally defected to the newly formed African Democratic Congress, ADC.
Eight members of the Oyo state House of Assembly have announced their defection from the ruling APC, Accord and the Labour Party to the ADC. The defectors are Lukman Balogun, Bolaji Badmus, Azeez Billiaminu, Ganiyu Oseni, Olusegun Olaleye, Samson Oguntade and Muideen Olagunju.
Only last week, some lawmakers from the LP had joined the APC. The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has Honourable Felix Oyetunji and Adebo Ogundoyin. The remaining 12 members belong to the ADC
Impeccable sources told this newspaper that “He used to be very loyal to Oga (Ladoja) until we got to the PDP. He had suggested the name of of his loyalists to Ladoja to lead the party in his Ibadan North East local government. Ladoja had another person in mind and he explained to him. The decision didn’t go well with Oloya who wants to proceed to the House of Representatives. At a point, he considered joining the Unity Forum, the breakaway faction of the APC in Oyo State but when Ladoja joined the group in the ADC, he tarried.”
Efforts to get Oloya to speak proved abortive as his lines were unavailable as at the time of filing this report.
