After many months of presumption to know if the Former Governor of Ekiti State, Engineer Segun Oni has truly joined another party, it was finally authenticated on Friday, 26th June as he received membership card from the Ward Chairman of People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
It should be recalled that Chief Olusegun Oni as a former Governor of Ekiti State served between May 29, 2007 and October 14, 2010. He was then a member of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP). In 2014 he defected from the PDP and joined the newly formed opposition party All Progressive Congress (APC) where he became Deputy National Chairman, South.
However, his reign both as the governor of Ekiti State and Deputy National Chairman of APC recorded many achievements. As the political pendulum has swung again, amiable Segun Oni is back in PDP.
The presentation of membership card took place in Ifaki-Ekiti, his hometown by the authentic and recognised Ward Chairman, Abe Gboyega alongside the party Secretary, Mrs Seun Bamigboye.
When asked if the defection is in preparation for another governorship ambition, Asiwaju Segun Oni said “Only time will tell”.
