A former council chairman and Publicity Secretary of the PDP in Ondo State, Hon. Banji Okunomo has dumped the party for the Zenith Labour Party.
Okunomo was 5th with 90 votes to his credit at the last concluded PDP primaries held in July in the state.
He announced his resignation from the PDP at an Hotel in Okitipupa council area of the State.
Okunomo said he would officially leave the party with over 15, 000 members of the PDP across the 18 local governments of Ondo State during a formal declaration to be announced at a later date.
Recall that the choice of the deputy governor picked by the party’s governorship candidate, Eyitayo Jegede had continued to polarise the party and deepened its crisis.
National and state leaders of the party have pleaded with Jegede to pick one of the aspirants that contested the primary with him but he ignored them.
