Ex-Gov In Talks To Return to APC

Former Ogun State Governor, Olusegun Osoba who defected to Social Democratic Party, SDP from the APC in the build up to the 2015 general elections and made the party stronger, says he is returning back to his former party, APC. Osoba however didn’t state while he was returning, but noted that he has always been a part of APC, and the misunderstanding that made him leave last year is not personal and so would be resolved soon as talks are currently ongoing. He says he believes his coming back to APC is for the good cause of Yoruba and the nation at large and he can’t wait to see that happen.

According to a report by Punch Newspaper, the current leader of the SDP confirmed his plans to return to APC though he strongly stressed that he's yet to return to the ruling party as talks are ongoing to ensure his reconciliation.
Speaking on the reconciliatory moves and plans, Osoba said, “No, no. But there is an ongoing discussion between us but there is no final decision yet. I believe that the good cause of the Yoruba and the nation will give us the grace to come to an amicable reconciliation.”
“They (his grievances) are part of what we are discussing. We are discussing the implementation of our constitution. It has been a major issue and we are discussing it.

“There was nothing personal about the whole thing. There was nothing personal amongst us. It was only issues affecting progressivism. I am still a progressive; that is why I won’t go to the conservative rank under any circumstance,” Osoba revealed.
