He was elected in 2019 to represent the constituency on the platform of APC.

The lawmaker, who recently joined PDP has now been officially received by the PDP members in the assembly.

DAILY POST reports that Oyeleke was presented with the People’s Democratic Party, PDP flag at the brief ceremony held at the House of Assembly.

Oyeleke in his defection letter to the House of Assembly, said he left his former political party, APC because of some unresolvable internal wranglings.

His letter was read by the Clerk of the House of Assembly, Mrs Oludara Awe,

Oyeleke in the defection letter said, “APC in Oyo State has failed to uphold the tenets of democracy especially as it relates to justice and equity in its dealings with party faithful. I can’t continue to be in a party that does not value my interest and that of my supporters.

“The PDP has shown great potential in Oyo State and it remains the party to beat at all levels in 2023.”

Speaker of the House of Assembly, Adebo Ogundoyin while welcoming the lawmaker to PDP applauded his resolve to join the PDP in the state.
