Former Senior Special Assistant on Rural Mobilization to Kwara State Government, Comrade Musbahu Esinrogunjo has hit back at critics, saying he has right to exercise his freedom of association at any given time and the that is the reason he dumped the All Progressives Congress, (APC) for the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP).
The former O To Ge actor, made this clarification on Sobi FM programme, ORO ILU, Wednesday, December 7.
He, however, stated, any politician has the constitutional right to dump or join any political association in as much as the party’s ideologies align with his interest, citing notable politicians like former Kogi West Senator and former Speaker, House of Representatives, Dino Melaye and Yakubu Dogara who have recently pitched their tents with the PDP respectively.
He, further, charged the AbdulRahman-led dispensation to conduct Local Government election in order to foster massive developments at the grassroot level, thereby describing the appointment of the Transition Implementation Committee, (TIC) to administer the 16 Local Councils in the state as a major developmental drawback in the state.
Clearing air on the allegation that his defection to his former party, PDP is driven by personal interest, Esinrogunjo said he had sacrificed enough to benefit from the current political dispensation in the state but “the governor does value those who had laboured for him” during the O To Ge revolution that enthroned him as Governor.
He lamented that despite being estranged from his family during the O To Ge struggle as a result of threat to his life, he was sidelined throughout his stint in the AbdulRahman led-administration.
The ex-Student Union leader disclosed that Kwara State is no more in the dark age when State Government will boast prompt salary payment as a major accomplishment so as long as it is getting monthly allocation form the national government.
