Mayoress Olubukola Olayinka, the Deputy Chairman of the Labour Party in Oyo State, defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday, accompanied by hundreds of his supporters.
The vice chairman, who stated that her official defection was the result of extensive conversations with friends, associates, political peers, and leaders, stated that she quit the LP due to an internal crisis among the state’s leaders.
Olubukola berated the state Labour Party leadership while proclaiming her defection, describing Atiku as a unifier with the political experience, capacity, and honesty to unify Nigerians.

She said, “In the spirit of sincerity, love and progress, I wish to openly announce my exit and that of my followers from the Labour Party. Hundreds of my followers who believe in my political mentorship and I are also on this noble course.
“As an advocate of peace, whose life is driven by unity of purpose, I have done all my best as the Deputy Chairperson of Labour Party in Oyo State even in the face of sheer persecution, but all went down the drain as some people in the party believed they’re powerful than the political institution with their quisling mentality.
“As a result of this, my people and I have decided to cease our memberships henceforth with immediate effect. We strongly believe that the security of lives and properties of all Nigerians will be better guaranteed under the leadership and Government of Atiku Abubakar.”
