Over hundred members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Social Democratic Party (SDP) on Sunday defected into the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Iree, Boripe Local Government Council Area of Osun State.
They were received into the party by the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Prince Adebayo Adeleke in Iree, headuarters of Boripe North Local Council Development Area.

Oyekanmi said the defection would have been effected long ago but for the sudden outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic.
He assured that actions would be sped up on how an elaborate decampment programme would be put in place, to be able to officially receive other defectors into the party.
