Speaking the Nations Mind

Why I Am Still In APC – Tejuoso


The senator representing Ogun Central Senatorial District, Lanre Tejuoso, yesterday declared that he would only part ways with the APC if Buhari leaves the party.

Tejuoso was one of the senators who defected to the PDP few weeks ago but later changed his mind following intervention by Buhari.

The second-term senator, who spoke with journalists in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, while declaring his intention to re-contest the seat, said he remains in the party and that he is not a politician that moves around.

He said after his defection with others, the President called him and persuaded him to rescind his decision, an action he referred to as a great honour to him.

Tejuoso, who supported direct primaries at the national and state levels, said direct primaries would help the country’s democracy to mature.
