Ogun LP Chieftain Defects To PDP, says Party Well Placed For 2027

The candidate of the Labour Party (LP) for the Abeokuta South Federal Constituency election in 2023, Tolulope Phillips, has decamped to the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State.

New Telegraph reports that Phillips officially registered as a member of PDP on Wednesday at his Ward 7, Ijaye in Abeokuta South Local Government in the ongoing membership registration of the party.

Phillips and his supporters had earlier indicated their interest in joining the PDP in the state shortly after the last general elections.

Speaking with newsmen, Phillips said he had joined his political forces with that of PDP having been convinced that PDP is well placed to rule Ogun State and Nigeria come 2027.

He vowed that there is a need to rescue Ogun and Nigeria from “clueless leadership who are impoverishing Nigerians on a daily basis with needless and hardship policies.”

Phillips said, “We all witnessed what happened in Ogun State during the last governorship election. We knew who truly won the mandate of the people, but sadly it has ended the way it did.

“But I am sure the next election will be different. PDP is well positioned and the party is going to win by God’s grace.”

He called on Nigerians youths to improve on their political participation, saying “we cannot continue to abandon the political space to the charlatans.”
