From Bamigbola Gbolagunte, Akure
A Chieftain of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) and Senatorial Candidate of the party in Ondo central senatorial district, Dr Seun Majasanhas made his intention to dump the party known.
Majasan, barring any last minute change of decision is set to join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Majasan however, endorsed Governor Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa to become governor of Ondo state beyond 2025
The NNPP chieftain said his decision to dump the NNPP was because the party was rudderless and has been perpetually enmeshed in crisis.
He said there is no future in the NNPP and nobody should expect a politician of his stature to stay in a house where some leaders were only after their selfish interests.
He said I am done with NNPP, it’s high time I move with the winning party, the APC. I discovered that some people in NNPP are only after money and not the progress of the party in Ondo State.
“Let me inform you here that I can not continue in a party that is being run like a family business, dictatorship business, right from the national to the state level. I am not a Kwankwasiyya and can never be. I didn’t join NNPP because of Kwankwaso. He actually met me in the party.
“We don’t have leaders in NNPP anymore and you don’t expect me to stay in a party that is not stable and with people that lack focus.
“I thank all my tested and trusted followers and supporters, and I believe anywhere I go, they go with me. We are now in the winning team, which means winning is inevitable for us,” Majasan added.
He said he was also joining the APC because he is convinced that Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa will win the APC ticket and also the governorship election come November, 2024.
