There are strong indications that the Deputy Minority Whip of the House of Representatives, Hon. Adesegun Adekoya popularly called Attacker may leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State.
The Daily Crucible gathered as the Nigeria moves closer the 2023 general elections, Adekoya, who is the lone PDP federal lawmaker from Ogun State, might have perfected plans to drop the umbrella and pick the broom, the emblem of the APC.
An indication to the possible defection plans was the New Year get-together he organised at his Constituency Office in Ago-Iwoye, Ijebu North Local Government Area of the state where a former Governor of Ogun State and now APC chieftain, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, was the chairman of the occasion.
Daniel, who spoke in Yoruba language, said he and Adekoya had come a long way.
The ex-governor further stated that when the snail moves, it moves with the shell, adding that “if it was Attacker that will pull him or he that will pull Attacker remains to be seen,” a statement which Adekoya nodded to even as he brimmed with smiles.
His supporters, who were made up of mainly his kinsmen in Ago-Iwoye, roared and clapped apparently to show that they got the drift.
Party sources, who said Adekoya has always been seen more as an APC lawmaker than PDP’s, claimed that this accounted for the opposition of the Uche Secondus-led PDP National Working Committee to his emergence as the Deputy Minority Whip of the House of Representatives.
Though opposed by the then PDP leadership, Adekoya curiously had the support of the Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila and his other APC members for the position he currently occupies at the lower legislative chamber of the National Assembly.
Since his emergence as Deputy Minority Whip, Adekoya has allegedly been scheming to worm himself to the hearts of those that matter in both the PDP and APC.
