Omodewu said, as a leader of the party in the state, he had been appealing to aggrieved members of the party and his appeal had been yielding result.
He said, “We are here to ensure that we unite our people. This mammoth crowd are defecting to our party from the PDP today. We have been appealing to them to stay in their home. They don’t have anything to do outside the party when we are working hard to return to Agodi government house in 2023.
“For those contemplating of going to other party, no place like home. Let them stay in their house. As the chairman of the party in the state, I will continue to appeal to them to stay in the party. If you see what is going on in here today, you will see the need to unify our people.
