PDP Happy With Defections From APC
Naija News learnt that the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, made the claim today in an interview with Channels Television, one day after dozens of lawmakers in the National Assembly dumped the APC.
“We are very happy with their defection because it signposts the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has failed woefully, and Nigerians have become disenchanted with the government,” Ologbondiyan said during his appearance on Sunrise Daily.
He added, “The representatives of Nigerians are demonstrating the anger and the disappointment of Nigerians with their government. That is what led to the defection that we are witnessing.”
Ologbondiyan also disclosed that some governors on the platform of the ruling party would be joining the PDP soon.
He stated that on the other hand, his party has an established a framework for public office holders coming into the party, especially for governors and lawmakers.
According to the National Publicity Secretary, the PDP leadership held several discussions recently with existing party members to explain the situation in which they have found themselves, including the cases of defections and forming a coalition with other political parties.
