Six Years After, Prince Yomi Akinruntan Dumps PDP For APC



The first son of one of the stylish royal fathers in Nigeria, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Fredrick Obateru Akinruntan, Hon. Prince Yomi Obateru Akinruntan (popularly known as ABA), a representative of Ilaje Constituency 1 in the Ondo State House of Assembly, has dumped his political party, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

It was gathered that the entire PDP lawmakers in the State’s Assembly defected to APC from PDP the platform that brought them to office.

APC took over power from PDP at the centre in 2015 while the party also won the governorship election which held in the State last month.

Those who know Yomi Akinruntan well enough said he has always exploited his political opportunity in the best interest of his constituents.

He lost his first attempt before winning the second election that made him a member of the Federal House of Representatives in 2011.
