President Goodluck Jonathan has cancelled his presidential campaign rally scheduled for Wednesday in Akure, the state capital, following Tuesday’s defection of 48 key members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The defection earthquake forced Jonathan Campaign Organisation to cancel the campaign in Akure as majority of known supporters of the President have defected to APC or have traveled out of town.

All mobilization efforts for the rally have crashed, forcing PDP leaders to opt for cancellation of Akure rally on Wednesday, PDP sources in Ondo State told GISTMANIA.

All former Speakers in Ondo State House of Assembly, five Commissioners in Mimiko’s administration and eight local government chairmen in Ondo State are right now at a defection rally in Akure where they dumped PDP for APC. Scores of councillors are also part of the defection train.

They are being led by former Chief of Staff to the late Governor Segun Agagu, Mr Femi Agagu.

The greatest shock at the rally is the defection of former Speaker Victor Olabimtan, a director in President Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation and also a current member of the Federal Civil Service Commission.

In all, 48 PDP leaders in Ondo are leading thousands of their supporters to dump PDP for APC at a ceremony currently taking place at APC secretariat along Oyemekun Road, Akure.

There is this question many Nigerians are not asking, how you vote for someone under one political party and he or she will win election then tomorrow you will hear that he or she has defected to another. Does it mean he or sh is there to represent you or himself.
