One would recall that the governorship candidate of ADP in the State of Osun 2018 governorship election, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti had recently led all his suppoters that decamped with him back to the APC.

These are people that followed him (Adeoti) to the ADP before the 2018 governorship primary election of APC when the National Working Committee decided to conduct direct  primary for the candidates.

Prominent ADP returnees that were conspicuously absent at the Tuesday Oyetola/Famodun endorsement are High Chief Sola Ogunsanya, Dr. Wale Bolorunduro and their supporters.

APC stakeholders of the constituency that their absence at the ceremony also posed some concerns included Alhaja Kudirat Fakokunde, Osun APC Women Leader and Prince Shola Adewumi, O'RAMP State Coordinator.
