At the PDP secretariat, the crowd mainly from Ilorin South Local Government Area of the state complained of total neglect by theirpolitical leaders as a result of the acrimony between them.
The National Publicity Secretary of party, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, and party’s flag bearerin the 2011 governorship election, Mohammed Dele Belgore, SAN, had been at daggers-drawn over the party’s candidacy in2015 gubernatorial election.


However, many of the former ACN members, who were from wards like Oke-Ogun, Okaka I and II, Akanbi III, IV and V and Balogun-Fulani III in Ilorin South Local Government Area, while at the PDP secretariat tore the MDB banner and the ACN flag to show that they had left their former party.
The defectors were later, presented to the PDP chairman by the Ilorin South Local Government PDP chairman, Alhaji Adam Mohammed who explained that the Belgore’s forum was the backbone of ACN in the local government.

Speaking at a reception ceremony for the new PDP members, the leader of the group, Mr. Abdulazeez Kassim, said the erstwhile ACN had been the brain behind series of defeat suffered by the PDP in the council area, adding that a new lease of life has come to the party with their exodus.
