Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Patricia Olubunmi Etteh, on Monday defected to the All Progressives Congress with thousands of her supporters in Irewole, Ayedaade and Isokan Federal Constituency in Osun State.
Etteh, at a rally led by the Governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, to the federal constituency to drum up support for the candidates of the APC in this month’s elections, noted that her coming to the party was long overdue.
Etteh told the huge crowd that she decided to join the APC because of the party’s progressive policies and the love for the masses, stressing that her decision was to join the progressives so that she will be able to contribute her quota to the development of the people.
She commended Governor Aregbesola for the positive changes he has brought to the state in the past four and a half years, noting that the transformation of the state under the APC was glaring for all to see.
Aregbesola, while admitting the former Speaker and her supporters in Ikoyi, Apomu, Ikire, Araromi Owu, Orile Owu and Gbongan, enjoined voters in the local government areas and the whole state to vote for all the candidates of APC across board.
