He said, “If APC was and is good, Agboola Ajayi would not leave the APC. If PDP is bad, he would not say he is coming to the PDP. So the fact that he is leaving and he is interested in coming to the PDP has demonstrated again that the APC has collapsed and he needs to look for a good house.

“He has found that PDP is a good house. So he is welcome because we are looking for people. The party constitution is very clear. He would go to his ward and register. If he wants to contest, he will go to the National Working Committee and seek a waiver, when he finishes that, he would come here and pay administrative charges. When he has done with that, he would pay for the nomination form.
