Former governor of Ekiti state, Segun Oni said he left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Social Democratic Party (SDP) because he was cheated.
He said this on Sunday, during a debate at the state capital, Ado-Ekiti.
Oni, who is now SDP’s governorship candidate in the July 19 governorship election, explained that his decision was not borne out of desperation.
According to him, the PDP governorship primary election was not transparently conducted, hence his defection.
“It is not desperation, I do not like cheating. I don’t cheat and don’t like people to cheat. If I see a party that has no respect for its own rules, I see it as not my type of party.
“I contested the PDP primaries and it was supposed to be a secret ballot and the world saw how it became open to the extent that one man was being shown in every ballot.
“I detest cheating and don’t collaborate with cheats,” he added.
