Ogun Labour Party Chairman Defects To PDP


The Labour Party Chairman in Ogun State, Niyi Osoba, has resigned as the party’s leader in the state and decamped to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. This happened a day after former Ogun state governor, Gbenga Daniel, officially announced his defection to PDP.

Osoba, who spoke with PREMIUM TIMES Thursday morning, said his resignation was his personal decision, and that his move to PDP was not at the insistence of Daniel or Olusegun Mimiko, the Ondo State governor who also defected from LP to PDP.

According to him, “I resigned my position individually with the interest of Ogun people. If Gbenga Daniel is in PDP and I’m in PDP, it is a coincidence.

“Ogun people deserve a better government and my movement is to ensure that the present administration is replaced with a better one,” he told PREMIUM TIMES.

The former defecting LP Chairman, however, refused to speak on the party’s scheduled national convention in ‎Akure, Ondo State on Saturday and was equally silent on questions regarding the future of the party in Ogun state.

It was, however, learnt that the Ogun state PDP will on Sunday, at a mega rally in Abeokuta, present Daniel to its supporters.
