Mouthpiece NGR reports that aspirant for the seat of Ede North/Ede South/Egbedore/Ejigbo Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives on the platform of the All Progressives Congress in Osun State, Muslihudeen Adekilekun, has dumped the party.
Adekilekun who announced his defection on Saturday in Ede while speaking with journalist also said his political party is New Nigeria Peoples Party.
He cited imposition of candidates for his decision to dump the APC.
Adekilekun said he had been contributing to the growth of the ruling party in Osun since 2011, and yet its leaders often imposed candidates during party’s primaries, thereby sacrificing loyalty and dedication.
“The APC, particularly in Edeland, operates like a cult. It has become a party that encourages bribery over loyalty, prefers godfatherism to popularity/acceptability, honours and lords newcomers over faithful members, and goes for manipulation instead of integrity.”
