Moshood Adeoti, the Secretary to Osun Government, has resigned his appointment and defected to the Action Democratic Party(ADP).
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Adeoti was one of the 17 All Progressives Congress (APC) aspirants in the July 19 primary conducted by the party.
Adeoti, who announced his withdrawal a day before the primary, eventually scored 128 votes.
In a letter addressed to Abdul’aziz Yari, the Chairman of APC Primaries Committee and governor of Zamfara, Adeoti alleged that he was withdrawing because the primary had been skewed to favour Mr Gboyega Oyetola, the Chief of Staff to Gov. Rauf Aregbesola.
In his acceptance speech after a primary held at the ADP Secretariat on Monday in Osogbo, Adeoti urged the party members to support him in winning the Sept. 22 governorship election. Read more
