Today, as I and other members of the Kwara State House of Assembly dump the APC for good, I heaved a sigh of relief. In 2014, I was terribly sad leaving PDP reluctantly with 36 other members of the House of Representatives. Today, I am the happiest leaving the APC for good. pic.twitter.com/FFmvSC2POY
