Senator Olufemi Lanlehin, a chieftain of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) said he still with the party but not ruling out future association with other political parties.
Events of the last 24 hours, wherein fellow compatriots in the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Oyo State Chapter, have elected to defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has necessitated that Senator Olufemi Lanlehin (SOLAN), cleared the air, the media office said on Wednesday.
Lanlehin said the response came as particularly to defray all rumours and innuendos, as well as assuage the feelings of fellow stakeholders, numerous supporters, loyalists and well-wishers across the state who need to know his position.
“The fact remains that while the Distinguished Senator and governorship candidate of the ADC in the 2019 Election does not begrudge the defectors, believing it is a demonstration of their civic rights, he reiterates for the umpteenth time that he remains a loyal and committed member of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), totally sold out to the ideals, philosophies and policies of progressivism, a path he’s been towing ever since;
“While not ruling out associations with other political parties, groups or camps in the near future, especially given the fluid nature of Nigeria’s politics, SOLAN wishes to add that should such situation arise, he will do so in consensus with fellow stakeholders and teeming backers across Oyo State, and in fidelity to his conscientious brand of progressive politics.”
