The Commissioner for Community Development and Cooperative Services in Ondo State, Mrs Yetunde Adeyanju has resigned.

Mrs Adeyanju resigned yesterday, August 15, 2016, and subsequently announced her defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The former commissioner gave details about her decision via a statement. It reads in part:

“A huge burden has been lifted off my shoulders. The relief came from a refreshing freedom a political family where impunity reigns, freedom from subversion of democratic principles and indeed, freedom from deification of sycophancy.”

“In the last seven years, I have served in various executive capacities in the state. I started as executive chairman of Ondo State Waste Management Board, moved to head Ondo State Development Company Limited as executive chairman and finally, as commissioner in the Ministry of Community Development and Cooperative Services.

“Wherever I served, I discharged my duties with utmost dedication and unassailable integrity; notwithstanding the culture of greed, avarice and absolute disregard for the masses.

“Having exited the conundrum of capricious politics, I have, therefore, decided to align myself with true progressives in the APC.  While I salute the patriots in the APC, I also want to hail President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption crusade.

“It is, therefore my great pleasure to renounce my membership of PDP and announce my membership of APC.”
