A former leader of the House of Representatives, Honourable Mulikat Adeola-Akande, has said she remained a staunch member of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Speaking with Saturday Tribune on Friday through one of her aides, Honourable Taofeeq Aolalubarika, she said a report that she attended the inauguration of African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Ibadan, Oyo State, on Thursday was an error.
A newspaper report on Friday had listed her name as one of those in attendance at the ADC inauguration at the Next Hotel, Ibadan, on Thursday.
Reacting to the report, Aolalubarika, in a telephone call by Saturday Tribune, said Adeola-Akande remained a chieftain of PDP and would not contemplate dumping the party for any other at this critical time.
According to him, the former House leader had been a consistent member of PDP all along, adding that she would not commit such political suicide now that the party is gaining momentum ahead of the 2019 election.
“Adeola-Akande remains in PDP. She was not at the inauguration of ADC in Ibadan. The former House leader has been a consistent PDP member and so would not commit such political suicide at this time the party is gaining momentum,” Aolalubarika said.
