“I can confirm to you that, in a matter of days, Senator Akinyelure will leave the APC and return to his former party, PDP. The reasons he dumped PDP shortly after the 2015 elections no longer exists in the party.”
“What is now left is for him to officially announce his resignation from APC. He has picked up his PDP membership card at his ward in Idanre. If you care to know, his membership card number is 005.”
