Over one thousand members of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, in Ijebu East Local Government area of Ogun State have returned to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

Receiving the members Thursday at the party’s secretariat in Ogbere, the APC Chairman in the area, Otunba Adedayo Ademosu, said the returnees have finally come back home.

“You are all welcome back home, you have just returned to your home. This is your party, you are not strangers. I’m highly happy to welcome and receive you back home,” Ademosu said.

It was gathered that each ward in the local government was asked to bring some members to the secretariat for recognition while other returning members would be doing so in the 11 wards across the local government area.

“I am more than happy to see our people coming back to us. I have been persuading them before the election but they said they were having some issues then. God’s time is the best. I’m happy that they are back with us.
