Ondo State: 74 deregistered political parties disintegrate APC

Seventy-four political parties under the umbrella of the Conference of Deregistered Political Parties of Nigeria (CDPPN) have collapsed their organisational structures in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State.

The move comes ahead of the state's gubernatorial election scheduled for November 2024 and was disclosed in a statement by John Akinduro, spokesman for Ondo State Deputy Governor, Olaide Adelami.

The CDPPN is a collection of political parties that have been deregistered by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The group, led by APC stalwart, Professor William Olu Aderome, who met with Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa of Ondo State in Akure on Wednesday, said the governor has the requisite administrative and political qualities to lead the state to the next stage of development.

Aderounmu cited ongoing projects across the state as reasons that led the CDPPN to declare its support for the governor, describing him as “intelligent, approachable and focused.”

In his address, CDPPN Ondo State Coordinator, Mr Rotimi Akindejoy, commended the Governor for his stellar performance and leadership.

Akindejoy said he was not tired despite being deregistered, disclosing that the organisation has units willing to work for the governor in the 203 wards of Ondo State.

A representative of the PWDs group, Elegbeleye Sanmi, thanked the governor for including members of the PWDs group in all programmes and projects of the state government.

Reacting, the Governor who appeared on behalf of Deputy Governor Adelami assured that the CDPPN would be integrated into the APC organisation at all levels.

He said the party would continue to welcome all those willing to join the progressive wing for a greater Nigeria.
