One of the recent political defections that took the Ajeromi-Ifelodun of the ruling political party by surprise was Hon.Oladele Egbayelo,a renowned political scientist cum Public and International Affairs expert who saw the need to change his new political foundation to the old political foundation of the opposition party, where his political inputs were felt and touched by his avid followers and friends.

This defection saw the ruling political party in Ajeromi-Ifelodun using its grassroots online medium to attack the personality of Hon.Oladele Egbayelo whose political background in Ajeromi-Ifelodun is not just a solid one but a political foundation that redefines and collapses every existing political structures in the land.

His defection also sent a political pandemonium among the opposition aspirants that felt his presence at the party might create another political tension ahead of 2019 elections in Ajeromi-Ifelodun.

To some of schools of thought, while a young man that has such creative vision to lead Ajeromi-Ifelodun Constituency 2 to the promised land should defect to an opposition party that has no federal might to convince the electorate to vote for their candidates in 2019.

While speaking to Gabriovoicenews.com, one of the leading online media in Africa,Hon.Oladele Egbayelo said my defection was not to spy the opposition party in the local government but the innovative and resourceful works of Hon. Rita Orji at the National Assembly equally convinced me that if I’ m elected on this platform I would continue to consolidate on her good works to the people. I have been a card-carrier member and PDP chieftain over the years before I defected to the APC then.

Looking at the works done so far by Hon.Rita Orji for the past three years as a federal legislator, you will know that she had surpassed those that once represented us then. Politics of now is not about tribe but providing the needed legislative services to the good people of Ajeromi-Ifelodun.

Egbayelo said it is better we celebrate Hon.Rita Orji for exposing the political weaknesses of our former inactive Ajeromi-Ifelodun federal constituency legislators from 1999 to 2015.Her representation has brought political liberation to the constituency since 2015 till date. Irrespective of tribe, region whatever, Ajeromi-Ifelodun needs vibrant representative with pedigree in all the two constituencies that make up the two LGAs.

Hon.Oladele Egbayelo had his first degree in Political Science from Ado-Ekiti University and Masters degree in Public and International Affairs from University of Lagos. As a thoroughbred technocrat and political juggernaut in modern politics, he knows what it takes to be a leading political light in Africa.

Hon.Oladele Egbayelo came into the PDP family in Ajeromi-Ifelodun at the right time and he is ready to bring his political expertise to bear in the coming days as a full-fledged PDP chieftain and aspirant vying for Ajeromi-Ifelodun constituency two.

The fact remains that the doors of the opposition party in Ajeromi-Ifelodun is opened to everybody that has interest for the 2019 elections.

In 2016,the two political figures that were elected on the platform of the PDP who suddenly found a new solace in the ruling party also taught PDP faithful and members to scrutinize those whose intentions to contest and if elected and must remain in the party without negative thought of defection.

In Africa politics, interest comes first and Hon.Oladele Egbayelo political dynasty in Ajeromi-Ifelodun must not be taken for granted in grassroots politics.

No doubt, Ajeromi-Ifelodun constituency 11 has suffered great political setback where legislators elected over the years were not accessible to the people but Hon.Egbayelo has assured his constituents that if elected, he would do the needful to play modern politics with legacies. With the retinue of PDP aspirants for Ajeromi-Ifelodun constituency 1 and 2 show that the party is ready to bring the best candidate for the race.
