Senator Kola Balogun

Senator Kola Balogun, representing Oyo South Senatorial District, has resigned his membership in the Peoples Democratic Party.

This was contained in a statement signed by his Media Aide, Dapo Falade, on Monday evening in Ibadan.

NAN reports that Balogun, a younger brother of the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Lekan Balogun, is the Vice-Chairman of the Senate Committee on Sports and Youth Development.

Balogun’s resignation came a few days after he was denied a return ticket.
The ticket had been handed to Chief Joseph Tegbe, who recently defected to the PDP from All Progressives Congress.
