In his words, Dapo Abiodun advised the legislators to be loyal to the APC, which now has 22 of the entire 26 lawmakers that make up the house.

Abiodun, who described the lawmakers’ move as ‘home coming’, said they once left as a result of disagreement, but now returned home.

While welcoming the lawmakers back to APC, Abiodun stated, “You have not come back through coercion or by force. Remember you will be criticised for coming back.”

The governor reminded the defecting lawmakers that he did not discriminate against them in the past 18 months even while they were not with him.

“We will ensure you enjoy all the benefits that our members enjoy,” he promised.

In their separate remarks, the seven lawmakers – Ganiyu Oyedeji (Ifo 2), Musefiu Lamidi (Ado-Odo/Ota 2), Latifat Ajayi (Yewa South), Adeniran Adeyinka (Sagamu 2) and Yusuf Amosun (Ewekoro) appreciated Abiodun for what they termed his inclusive policy, promising to contribute their quota to the socio-economic development of the State.
