The Oyo State Deputy Governor, Engr. Rauf Olaniyan, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
The deputy governor announced his defection to the APC at a press conference held on Sunday in Ibadan, the state capital.
Olaniyan said he remains the deputy governor of the state, adding that his defection would not affect his relationship with Governor Seyi Makinde.
