“I am writing to inform the state executive and leaders of the All Progressive Party Congress (APC) in Oyo State that I want to formally announce my return to our wonderful party on December 15, 2023, at a ceremony that will take place at the party office in Oke-Ado. The letter stated, in part, “I want the state executive to spearhead this celebration, and I want all local government party chairmen and leaders to be present.

Mr. Adelabu claimed to have consulted the party’s leaders upon his return and recalled leaving the APC as a result of the crisis that shook the organization during the state congress.
You will remember that at the height of the turmoil that rocked the party due to the way the state congress and the primary elections were conducted, I departed the party with my devoted and loyal supporters.
But after consulting with our executive and national leaders, I have made the decision to rejoin the party. The minister stated, “My first instance of this was a polite visit to the national chairman of the party, where we agreed on the imperatives of my return to the party.”
Mr. Adelabu promised to collaborate with party leaders and the state executive to carry out President Bola Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda.
