The defection notice was contained in a letter addressed to the House of Representatives and read by the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila at the plenary on Wednesday in Abuja.
Aremu said that the crisis in the ADC was the reason for his defection, saying all efforts to resolve the crisis had failed.
The House Deputy Minority Leader, Toby Okechukwu (PDP-Enugu), said there was a contradiction in the letter.
He said that to his knowledge there was no crisis in the ADC and saw no reason for the defection.
Okechukwu said that the admiration expressed for Gov. Abiodun by the defector was not authentic for defection.
The Speaker asked Okechukwu to mention the name of ADC chairman to prove he knew there was no crisis in the party.
When Okechukwu did not, Gbajabiamila described the intervention of Okechukwu as “meddlesome interloper”, and turned down his plea. (NAN)
