Former Speaker, House of Representatives, Hon. Patricia Olubunmi Etteh, yesterday decamped from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) with thousands of her supporters in Irewole, Ayedaade and Isokan Federal constituency in Osun State.
According to a Vanguard report, the former speaker, in a rally led by the Governor of Osun State, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, 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, saying 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 change he has brought to the state in the past four and a half years, noting that the transformation of the state under APC is glaring for all to see.
