Dimeji Bankole Ports to SPD, PDP gives Him Their Middle Finger

Ogun state PDP said it is not bothered by the defection of former speaker, federal house of representative Demeji Bankole to SDP, saying he has no clout to make the party panic over his defection.

The Ogun state Chairman of  PDP, Bayo Dayo, made his opinion known in Abeokuta, while fielding questions from reporters during the inauguration of PDP's 35-man Governorship Campaign Committee at the party secretariat.

Mr Bayo said: “I always say the truth. I heard it last night and I can tell you as I have said earlier, it’s a free world, everybody has the right to be associated with any group that he wishes. But if that is done, you will then know and the people in Abuja will know who is on the ground.

“Bankole contested the position of House of Representatives in one local government when he was in office as the Speaker of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and lost.

“Let him now contest in 20 local government areas and let us see the outcome. I challenge them to the fact that come February 14, you will all see the result of whatever arrangement that is going on.”

“Some people, when they live in glass houses, they will not know that there are other people looking at them.

“Let him contest under any platform and people in Abuja will know whether he is actually on ground or not. That is all I have to say. We cannot force everybody to stay in PDP. Our prayer is that the more people that are going out, more people that are more than them should be coming to the party. And with that, we are going to win the election come February 14 by the grace of God.”
