Kwara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed has announced his defection to the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).
He made the announcement Tuesday evening.
In a statement sent to DAILY POST by Dr. Muyideen Akorede, his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Communications, the Kwara Governor gave reason for his defection.
He explained that his decision followed due consultations with the people and in response to calls by major stakeholder groups in the state.

His announcement coincided with that of Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
Saraki wrote on his Twitter page: “I wish to inform Nigerians that, after extensive consultations, I have decided to take my leave off the All Progressives Congress (APC).”
