His decamp might not be unconnected to the clean of bill of health given to Senator Mudasiru Hussein who is supposed to enter into APC primary contest with him on Wednesday, June 14, 2017.
Having decamped to the rival party, Senator Mudasiru Hussein will get a smooth ride to represent APC while Dr. Demola Adeleke will represent a faction of the PDP in the senatorial elections to be conducted very soon.
