APC CRISIS: Lawmakers defected due to their love for Nigerians, says Fayose




Ayodele Fayose, outgoing Governor of Ekiti State, has highlighted reasons some lawmakers in the National Assembly defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Fayose said the lawmakers defected due to their love for Nigerians.

DAILY POST had reported that no fewer than 15 senators of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Tuesday, have defected from the party. The defectors cited crisis and factions as the reasons for their defection, saying they cannot continue to pursue their political careers under the ruling party.

Similarly, a total of 37 members of the House of Representatives announced their official defection from the All Progressives Congress, APC. While 33 moved to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) 4 moved to another party.

Reacting to the move, Fayose insisted that the defection of the lawmakers was long overdue.

Speaking during a visit to the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, Fayose commended the lawmakers who defected from the APC.

According to Fayose, “It is long overdue. All the shenanigans in Ekiti, all the manipulations in Ekiti, this was one of the reasons they did that to make sure they intimidate and prevent them from carrying out this national defection.

“They are defecting because of Nigerians, not PDP. Just that PDP is the credible alternative.

“If you look at killings, nobody even counts anymore. It has gone beyond counting. What they do represents the feeling of Nigerians.”
