In a letter made available to Elombah News the Senator stated:
Today, 24 July 2018, a letter was read during the Senate Plenary announcing the defection of some Senators from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Please be advised that my defection is as a result of issues within the APC Oyo State Chapter…
As we know, politics is local and despite the rhetoric, there has been little or no effort at the State level to reconcile differences by incorporating various stakeholders & interests.
I hereby declare affiliation with the African Democratic Congress (ADC).
Arise & Shine!
Senator Mosunrat Sumonu
