Addressing journalists on behalf of others, the Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Dr Wasiu Olatunbosun explained that after much consultation with relevant stakeholders, the appointees decided to move to PDP to support the re-election bid of Governor Seyi Makinde in view of his laudable achievement.
According to Dr Olatunbosun, others who pitched tents with PDP under ADC included special advisers to the Governor, elected vice-chairmen at local governments, elected councillors and supervisory councillors in the present government in the state.
He stressed that the party structure of the party of ADC in the state remained, adding that there would be a public declaration to announce the next line of action.
