|Why we dumped APC for ADC – Rep Olasupo by holarwealth: 3:21 pm On August 9, 2018|
Hon. Abiodun Olasupo, representing Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa federal constituency, has stated that members of his Unity Forum in the Oyo State Chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) were forced to defect to the African Democratic Congress (ADC).
Olasupo, Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Legislative Compliance, said this at Iwere-Ile in Iwajowa Local Government Area of Oyo State at a town hall meeting with constituents.
The group had accused Governor Abiola Ajimobi of disrespect for party supremacy.
“Democracy is about tyranny of the majority. There won’t be a strong political party when the interest of minority overrides that of the majority”, NAN quoted him as saying.
“As long as there is no strong political party, there won’t be a stable government and without a stable government, there won’t be the much-desired development.
“When the tenets of a political party do not give power to the people to elect who leads them, then free exit is guaranteed.
“People will have to move to another party where they are warmly welcomed and where internal democracy is much sacrosanct.
“We defected to ADC where we found an abode. This is an abode where party supremacy and internal democracy is highly valued.
“In this party, the tyranny of majority works and the minority have their say”, he said.
The lawmaker also condemned the siege laid to the National Assembly by the DSS operatives, describing it as sad in a democracy
