The re-election bid of Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo State, is receiving a boost.
Days after Joseph Tegbe, a former governorship aspirant in the Oyo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, called it quit, Sumbo Owolabi, commissioner for water resources in the administration of late former governor Abiola has joined the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The politician, who is a son of an Ibadan high chief, was said to have been nominated into Ajimobi administration by Folarin.
Owolabi, a former chairman of Ona-Ara local government, recently met Makinde to finalize his movement from APC to PDP.
Though details are still sketchy as at press time as to why the politician, who was once personal assistant to three-term senator and APC governorship aspirant, Teslim Folarin, when he was senate leader, defected, Makinde, it was learnt, is leaving no stone unturned in his bid to get members of the opposition into his camp.
Owolabi promised to get back to OYOINSIGHT.COM when he was called for reaction.
