BREAKING: MASS DEFECTION LOOMS AS 23 PDP REPS SET TO DUMP PARTY FOR APC

Mass defection looms as 23 PDP reps set to dump party for APC

Ahead of the 2019 general elections, 23 members of the House of Representatives are reportedly set to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Daily trust reports that the prospective defectors wanted to leave because over alleged plans by their state governors to manipulate elections to favour their anointed candidates in place of seasoned legislators.

States said to be affected by the planned defection include Gombe, Benue, Kogi, Enugu, Ekiti, Anambra, Cross River, and others whose lawmakers are at loggerheads with their governors.

A source involved in the planned defection said this wasa testament that all was not well in the PDP.

The source also said the APC was promising automatic tickets for the aggrieved members.

The source said: “We want to leave not because it is our wish but the governors have pushed us to the wall.

"We have fought physically and mentally to defend the PDP and democracy. Despite our commitment to the party, see what the governors are doing to us.”

Meanwhile, report by Vanguard indicates that the battle for tickets in the APC, worsened on Monday, September 10, as different factions in the party across the country took battle positions ahead of the party’s primaries holding later this month.

According to the report, the war cries were especially raised in Lagos, Ogun, Ondo, Rivers, Cross River, Delta and Yobe states.
