The 2015 governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Oyo State, Engineer Seyi Makinde, has decamped back to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.
 
Recall that the PDP National Caretaker Chairman Senator Ahmed Makarfi, recently visited Oyo state as part of reconsolidation moves to bring back all the aggrieved members.
 
Annoucing his return to the PDP in a statement signed by his Media office yesterday, Makinde said his return follow extensive, deep and wide conaultations.
 
“Following extensive, deep and wide consultations with National Leaders, Oyo State leaders and elders of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), and cross sections of strategic partners within Oyo State, I hereby announce my defection, with the entire Omititun campaign structures at the 33 local government areas in Oyo State, to the People Democratic Party.”
 
He further added that the repositioning is not primarily to pursue his personal ambition but was largely informed by the resolution of all opposition parties in the state as contained in a recent communique signed by leaders of opposition parties to work together in Oyo State so as to find lasting solutions to the myriad challenges and underdevelopment facing Oyo citizens.
 
Makinde listed the challenges as “Educational dysfunction and perennial failure, social and economic woes and lack of adequate security – all which are outcomes and consequences of the ineffective six years of the All Progressives Congress rule in our state.”
 
He said he “is ready to proffer long lasting and far reaching solutions to salvage Oyo state from imminent collapse and needless crises that the current government has bestowed on our people.”
