Am Still In Accord Party, My Appointment Base On Work Done For Makinde – Dada Awoleye
A Former member of the All Progress Congress APC in Oyo state and two term House of Representatives member
under APC, Hon. Dada Awoleye
has reaffirmed his membership in Accord party despite his recent appointment as
chairmen of the Hospital Management Board and Primary Health Care Board by governor Seyi Makinde.
Hon. Awoleye who was on Noble FM 107.1 political program tagged LAGBO OSELU with Saheed Alatise eulogised governor Makinde for the appointment given to him, saying the governor had fulfilled an agreement they made during the warming up of 2019 governorship election,
He explained that, his appointment from a PDP government doesn’t mean he has decamped from Accord party to PDP.
Hon. Awoleye who was at different times a member of the House of Representatives Committees on Telecommunication, Health, Army, HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria Control said, he and his followers supported the election of governor Makinde.
He said: ” Am not a PDP member, but all I can say it that, Makinde valued our contribution towards his election victory also, acknowledged my competence outside politics, that’s why he appointed me to the position, I never lobbied”.
” After the presidential and national assembly election, Accord party leaders from national gave order that, we can go ahead to work for any governorship candidate of choice in our respective states, at that point, our option suppose to be APC, but Adebayo Adelabu, APC gubernatorial candidate didn’t come for us, and we can’t go to him either, he is the one that needed us, so suppose to come for negotiation.
” So, when Seyi Makinde came, we talked, his offer was good so I ordered all my people to work for PDP “
” Not all Accord party formed the coalition with Seyi Makinde, part of Accord party worked for APC, he stated.
Hon. Awoleye buttressed the fact that, he has never collapse his structure in all the 33 local government of Oyo state for PDP, however both parties only agreed to work on Makinde’s victory not defection
