Captain Popoola In his words said: Truly Senator Rafiu Ibrahim and the PDP executive and some stakeholders in Kwara South visited after you left and pleaded with me not to leave PDP but it’s too late because I have made up my mind already. They said the YPP party that is romancing me doesn’t have a political structure but I told them we can create the structure for the party and am very sure that YPP will win. I let them understand that this time around is not about money because at this stage of my life I am not after monetary benefits, houses or cars but am after a Kwara that will work for all.”

“As I have said earlier I have never left PDP since 2001. But as of today, I, Captain ST Popoola, am happy to announce my defection from the PDP to the YPP. As from today, I am a full YPP member.”

Popoola also declared support for Alhaji Yakubu Gobir and promises to deliver Oyun local government for YPP during next year’s governorship election.
