The defection happened during the campaign tour of the PDP senatorial candidate for Kwara South, Senator Rafiu Adebayo Ibrahim who was joined by the deputy gubernatorial candidate of the PDP; Hon. Gbenga Makanjuola, PDP candidate for Ekiti/Irepodun/Isin/Oke-Ero constituency; Engr. Dare Bankole, and the House of Assembly candidate for Irepodun constituency; Barr. Bello Afolayan.

According to the defectees, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara state has been nothing but a monumental failure and they have come to the understanding that other mushroom parties like Social Democratic Party (SDP) are only cut out of the same coat as APC so they have nothing to offer either. They therefore endorsed the candidacy of Senator Rafiu Ibrahim who according to them has proven himself as a competent representative in the past and they trust him to do better.

Another dramatic twist to the defection was the symbolic cremation of brooms at Ara-orin which symbolizes an end to APC in Kwara state.
