We’re Still Being Treated As Outcast In PDP, Akinlade Cries Out

By Bukola Badmus

 Deputy Governorship candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun state, Hon. Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade has called on leaders of the party in the state to fully absorb members of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) into the mainstreamall that, Akinlade popularly known as Triple A in June 2022 defected to PDP with over 20,000 APM members in Ogun state.

Addressing the aggrieved members of the defunct APM at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, noted that since 2022, no member of the defectors has been issued membership cards of the party.

Instead, he said the defectors were treated as outsiders or better still, called “APM People”

He maintained that, apart from Alh. Ganiyu Dada, the PDP Ogun West senatorial candidate, Hon. Lukmon Atobatele and Hon. Idowu Olowofuja of Abeokuta South state constituency 1 and 2 respectively in the 2023 general elections, most of his followers who had procured nomination forms in APC but were schemed out could not enjoy the same opportunity.

He reminded the PDP leaders in the state that, he joined the party with his team of followers when it was neither fashionable nor profitable to do.
According to Akinlade, absorbing the APM family fully into the party would enhance the commitment and confidence of thousands of his supporters to join hands in repositioning PDP for future electoral victories.

“The purpose of this meeting is two folds, first is the need for my people, the APM family in Ogun PDP to be fully absorbed into the mainstream of the party across the 236 Wards in the State, update our people on efforts that we have made thus far and project our confidence for positive outcomes. Secondly, there is the need to set the record straight on the misinformation being reeled out by some mentally lazy individuals whose stroke in trade is lying and cheap sycophancy.
