Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim, the presidential candidate of the Peoples’ Trust in the 2019 election, on Wednesday, defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

He made his position known in a statement titled, ‘Prominent politician, Olawepo-Hashim, pitches tent with APC,’ in Abuja.

The statement quoted Olawepo-Hashim as saying that he opted for the APC to actualise his vision because the party is populated by people with whom they founded the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, together.

According to him, he is now convinced about the passion of President Muhammadu Buhari to fight corruption in Nigeria even though critics have questioned the effectiveness of his anti-corruption crusade.

The statement read in part, “opting for the APC to actualise my vision because the party is not just populated by people with whom we founded the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) together but also because the party is a reasonable pathway for the preservation of the unity and progress of the nation.”

“In deciding for the APC, I have no illusion that I have come to a perfect party or that the struggle to birth a new Nigeria on this my chosen new platform will be easy.

“I remain solid in my pursuit of a New Nigeria, Modern, United Peaceful and prosperous! God bless us all.”

Meanwhile, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sen. Joy Emordi, also joined the APC on Wednesday.
