BREAKING: Faruk Abbas Dumps Osun PDP


…says party has lost touch with yearnings of the people

A former candidate for the Ejigbo State Constituency Seat of the Osun State House of Assembly, Barr. Faruk Abbas, alongside many of his followers, have dumped the PDP.

In a statement released on his personal Facebook profile, the renowned Lawyer stated that the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State has lost touch with the yearnings of the people of the State, saying the party has now been hijacked by “those who believe in promoting mediocrity and bootlicking over competence”.

He also stated in his letter of resignation, a copy of which was cited by our correspondent, that “the State has been facing unequal distribution of projects and political appointments, indicating that certain Local Governments are being prioritized over others”, while asserting that there has been no meaningful infrastructural development in Ejigbo Local Government, despite the substantial increase in Federal allocations to Osun State.

It has also been confirmed that a former South-West PDP Youth Leader, Engr. Yinka Jimoh Adigun, and a former Vice Chairman in Ejigbo Local Government, Alh. Musiliu Bello, and thousands of the loyalists, have also dumped the PDP.

This development closely follows recent news of the impending defection of two former Gubernatorial Aspirants in the PDP, Omooba Dọtun Babayemi, and Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi, from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress.

The spate of defections appear to be setting the stage for political activities ahead of the 2026 Gubernatorial contest, in which the incumbent Governor, Sen. Ademola Adeleke, is expected to seek re-election.
