Why I returned to APC – Adelabu 

The Minister of Power, Chief Adebayo Adelabu, has disclosed that his return to the All Progressives Congress (APC) was not about his 2027 governorship ambition.

Adelabu said this during his official defection to the APC with his loyalists and supporters held at the party’s secretariat in Ibadan at the weekend.

According to the minister, his return to APC was to make the party stronger and as well as to help  President Bola Tinubu’s led administration succeed.

The minister stressed, “This is not time for politics, it is time for governance and Tinubu needs our support for him to succeed and deliver on his Renewed Hope Agenda”.

“I returned not because of 2027 governorship ambition or to take over the party, but because I believe this is a party that brought President Bola Tinubu to power, and we need to support him to deliver on his electoral promises.” 

Chief Adelabu noted “We are assuring you that we are back for cooperation and collaboration for us to build a strong party so that the party will take over power in the state at the end of the day in 2027.”
