Leaders and members of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and other political parties that have decamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC) may not be allowed to hold leadership position in the ruling party.

Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, hinted this when he returned to Ilesa, Osun State, to revalidate his membership of the APC.

A statement Sola Fasure, Media Adviser to Ogbeni Aregbesola’s, quoted the minister as saying that although it is part of the democratic process for all kinds of people, even those with questionable and unedifying past, to cross into the progressive, people-centred party, they should not be allowed to occupy leadership positions.

He said: ‘On the influx of leaders and members of the opposition PDP and other political parties to the APC, he told them that it is part of the democratic process for all kinds of people, even those with questionable and unedifying past, to cross into the progressive, people-centred party.

‘He noted however that the members have a moral duty to ensure that such elements do not occupy leadership positions and use it to subvert and derail the party. He told them of the imperative of internal democracy in the party.’
