Ondo APC Unity Forum’s leader joins Akeredolu’s camp

A leader of the Unity Forum of the All Progressives Congress in Ondo State, Mr Idowu Otetubi, has dumped the group to join the Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s camp in the party.

Otetubi made his decision public in an interview with journalists in Akure, on Sunday.

The former factional leader said his decision to pull out of the group, was to promote the ongoing reconciliation process within the APC.

He said, “The time has come for us to end this exercise in futility and halt the needless distractions that we have given to the parent-body, APC. The unity we craved for, in a group that was propelled by sheer envy, jealousy and greed has thus far remained elusive.

“In light of the above, I, Idowu Otetubi, have resolved to pull out of the Unity Forum. In making this announcement, I leave no room for further negotiations on the matter.”

On the pending case in the court, he declared, “Ahead of this declaration, as we speak, I have withdrawn unconditionally, my case in court, suit No. FHC/AK/CS/10/2019, challenging the composition of the State Executive Committee of the party. These decisions are purely informed by my unquenchable desire for the progress of the state and the APC, particularly, the Ondo State chapter.”

Reacting to the development, the state APC Chairman, Mr Ade Adetimehin, said, “This is a good development, our party remains one irrespective of what is going on and I want to assure you that before the election, we would be more united.”
