Former President of the Senate, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has revealed that some big wigs in the ruling All Progressive Congress are preparing to join the Peoples Democratic Party.
The former Governor of Kwara State disclosed this on Tuesday while appearing on Arise News programme, Naija News reports.
According to the PDP chieftain, the notable persons in the ruling party will shift ground towards the 2023 general elections and declare their allegiance to the umbrella camp.
Saraki noted that bigwigs do not defect at an early stage as anticipated by people.
He said: “We are expecting defections from the ruling party. If you follow politics, you will understand that some of the big players don’t defect early; they defect very late in the game, so just keep watching.”
Recently, the All Progressive Congress (APC) lost no fewer than five thousand members to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Cross River, Naija News recalls.
Bukola Saraki, a former Senate President, has dismissed the possibility of returning to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Saraki assured that he would remain in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 2023.
He spoke while responding to a question on Arise News on Tuesday on the possibility of defecting to APC if he fails to clinch the opposition party’s presidential ticket.
Describing himself as a team player, Saraki said it would be unfair to think he would join APC in 2023.
