Ado-EkitiFormer Senate Minority leader Biodun Olujimi has denied speculations she was planning to dump Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for All Progressives Congress (APC).Olujimi, who addressed reporters in Ado-Ekiti yesterday, said she remained a committed member of PDP and would never leave.

They came and said they needed a breath of fresh air, a new beginning and inclusiveness and we started a movement which gathered so much momentum that they thought we were eroding the ground upon which they stand.
