National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole has revealed that the party is not losing sleep over the defection of 15 Senators and over thirty Members of the House of Reps from the party.
Oshiomhole, who said the party is not shaken by the development revealed that the defected members were “mercenaries” who worked against the party for their own personal gains. He went ahead to speak to the President on the way forward for the party as they hope to put the defections behind.
The former Edo State Governor said the party is “not disturbed at all” by the swirling motion the lawmakers took against the party after they moved away in heavy numbers.
He further stated that the party would have a better focus on its campaign ahead of the 2019 election as the absence of “share money” politicians would ensure they are purpose driven and more accountable in approach.
Recall that Senator Bukola Saraki announced the defection of fifteen(15) members of the Senate away from the ruling party in a development that has been a hot topic of discourse amongst members of the public.
