Aregbesola’s Finance Commissioner dumps APC for PDP

Dr. Wale Bolorunduro, who served as Osun State Commissioner for Finance during the first term of ex-governor Rauf Aregbesola, on Wednesday, announced his defection to the Peoples Democratic Party.

Bolorunduro, an ally of Aregbesola, had a running battle with the administration of Governor Gboyega Oyetola, especially regarding state debt portfolio, and when the state government decided to subject some of the mega schools built by the previous administration to integrity test.

Speaking to newsmen in Osogbo, where he disclosed he had dumped the All Progressives Congress(APC)  for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) , Bolorunduro said the current ruling party in Osun State had gone beyond redemption with deceit, injustice and lack of fairness.

The ex-finance commissioner said the leadership of the APC in the state had sidelined him to the extent that he was not involved in the matter concerning it even in his ward.

According to him, the decision to quit the APC was not for political patronage in his new party, adding that having consulted with his followers and families, it was agreed that he should move to the PDP.

He said,

“I have been in APC for eight years (after I left office) without any patronage, benefits or appointment, yet I worked for the party in the 2015 and 2019 federal elections. I can survive outside government and very well too.

“My records are there in Zenith Bank, where I pioneered different financing groups (upstream oil and gas, Telecom, power sector, infrastructure group) at different times, when God allowed me to conquer one front after another. My adrenalin is usually fired by new challenges.

“I have consulted widely with my followers, admirers, friends and families, who felt we should pitch our tent with the PDP, to join this party and to work with them to shine the light (Imole Osun). We would have done this before the 2022 gubernatorial election, but knowing ‘them’ it was better ‘to err on the side of caution’, for us to have today, tomorrow and future.”
