But a chieftain of PDP who begged not to be mentioned said that Makinde will leave PDP, ahead of 2023 election due to some disagreement between him and some chieftains of the party.

The PDP chieftain on Sunday said that Makinde will join ADC immediately after the forthcoming local government election in the state.

He added that the governor was not satisfied with the current leadership of the PDP in the state, hence his decision to dump the party for ADC.

The PDP chieftain in Ibadan said that Makinde has been engaging ADC chieftains among whom are Mrs. Monsurat Sunmonu, a former Speaker in the State to have a smooth defection to ADC, adding that Sunmonu is one of the ADC chieftains that have been holding forth for Makinde in ADC.
