The Political Transfer Window in Nigeria is Getting interesting on daily basis. The Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Alhaji Ali Olanusi, has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress. The respected politicians’s defection to the APC was confirmed on Thursday on Akure, the state capital: “It is true. He has moved to the APC,” the Deputy Governor’s press secretary confirmed. Sources says Olanusi fell out with Governor Segun Mimiko over his decision to move from the Labour Party to the PDP. In fact, so many aides of Mimiko also disagreed with the switch from the Labour Party to the PDP.
Mimiko had pulled a masterstroke on his former boss, late Governor Olusegun Agagu, when he pulled out Olanusi from the PDP and announced him as his running mate on the platform of the Labour Party. Olanusi was then the Chairman of the PDP in Ondo State. With Mimiko’s decision to move to the PDP from the Labour Party, several of his lieutenants disagreed with him.
