Ajayi, who was a former APC chairman in Orile-Agege Local Council Development Area, announced his withdrawal from the group on April 20 over alleged undemocratic practices by the group’s Lead Visioner, Dr. Olajide Adediran.

Ojelabi recalled the contributions of the returnees to the party.

He said: “I welcome you back to our fold. Welcome to our great party and congratulations for taking the right decision.

“As a progressive, we know it’s not likely for you to fit into the system of PDP.”
