Lawmaker representing Oyo South Senatorial District at the Senate, Senator Kola Balogun, was recently booed and disgraced at the All Progressives Congress (APC) primaries.

Having defected to the APC, Balogun, who is the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Lekan Balogun’s younger brother, was the only senator elected to the Upper Legislative on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party in Oyo State in 2019.

However, Kola left the PDP following the decision of Governor Makinde, to deny him a return to the Senate for a second term. Makinde allegedly handed over the PDP ticket for Oyo South Senatorial District to Joseph Tegbe, who defected to the PDP from the APC.

During the primaries, delegates chanted loud noises, calling him a thief (Ole) as they clapped their hands over his head.

The viral video shows Kola Balogun seated on a chair amid the loud noises from the delegates.
