President Muhammadu Buhari has sent good wishes to former members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, who today defected to the opposing People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
He said that APC did its best to stop their transfer, but since it is clear that PDP is the party they now prefer, he can only wish them the best in their future undertakings.
His words, “I wish all of our party members who today defected, the very best in their future undertakings. The APC has done its best to stop the defections, and I must commend the party leadership for working tirelessly to unite the party and position it for future victory.
“I am confident that no harm or injury will be done by these defections, to the APC and its aspirations. I urge party faithful to not despair, but to instead see this as something that happens in seasons like this, on the eve of elections.
“As the saying goes, all politics is local. We understand that some of the Distinguished and Honourable lawmakers have issues in/with their home states, especially on zoning which bars some of them from seeking another term in their constituencies.”
