An Ondo State member of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Adefiyose, has dumped the Social Democratic Party to join the All-Progressives Congress.
On Wednesday, Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, read Adefisoye’s letter of defection during plenary.
Adefisoye, in the letter said in part, “My decision to quit the SDP was informed by the irreconcilable leadership crisis within the party. The protracted leadership crisis has manifested in the plethora of ongoing court cases as well as multiple factions of the party that have surfaced at the national level and the Ondo State chapter of the party.”
Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu, commenting on the defection noted that Adefisoye was not in the chamber.
Gbajabiamila, however, argued that there is presumption of regularity in the Law which could be presumed that Adefisoye wrote the letter until he debunks it.
