According to him, his decision to leave the party became inevitable due to certain sad realities.


“I was living in denial and dreaded this moment but it’s a sad reality; I struggle so hard to climb the ladder but only got to the last step before discovering the ladder was leaning on the wrong building.

“Today, I withdraw from the Oyo State PDP and step aside from partisan politics until I am fully persuaded otherwise. I know thousands of you look up to me, particularly the young folks but according to Bishop David Oyedepo; “How long you’ve been on a wrong journey doesn’t guarantee arrival at the right destination”. I apologize for the pains, disappointments and inconvenience this decision might cause many of you; forgive and just pray for me but please don’t pity me. I also apologize for the quarrels, disputes, unpleasantness that happened in the cause of working and loving someone who despises me; I am very sorry for being blinded and deafened by passion and love, howbeit unappreciated, so much that I ignored your warnings and admolitions. I take full responsibility for how it has turned out and pressing the exit button is a self preservation move.

“I will remain my political self but without party affiliation for now. Thanks for the love and support I have enjoyed from all of you, which you generously expressed irrespective of political and religious affiliations; I hope these won’t wean in the coming days.

“QUOTE: “One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but it can never be taken away unless it is surrendered.” —Anonymous. The Lord is the Almighty; he’s my portion in the land of the living,” his statement read.
