It was like a political rally on Thursday 21st of June, 2012 as the Wright street along  Adekunle end of third Mainland bridge witnessed the gathering of political stalwarts and leaders in the ruling Action Congress of Nigeria, party faithful and members of the public as PDP members decamped to Action Congress of Nigeria.

The group which was led by a grassroots politician, Kamson Olasunkanmi said the decision to decamp to Action Congress of Nigeria was borne out of the need to associate and ally with the progressive party. Action Congress of Nigeria is the only progressive Party in Nigeria that have people oriented programmes in their agenda. He hailed the leadership qualities of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. He was then presented with the Party flag and the symbolic ACN broom.

Receiving the decamped members of PDP at the occasion were  Action Congress of Nigeria national chieftain, Hon wale Oshun, Yaba LCDA chairman Hon AbdulRaheem Olajide Jimoh and his counterpart from Lagos Mainland Local government, Hon Rufus Adekanye, Otunba Tayo Oyemade, Chief Soyode, Mr Kola Balogun,  Lagos State ACN Treasurer, Mr Nurudeen Bamidele and other notable party leaders. Hon oshun assured the decamped members of equal opportunities in the party as they would not be discriminated against.

In his own remarks, Hon Jide Jimoh said PDP as a party has failed the nation going by the rate of insecurity, poor economy policy, unemployment and pronounced bribery and corruption that is the order of the day in the country.
