Defection: Why APC Lawmakers May Defect to PDP – Elumenu

Ndudi Elumelu, the minority leader of the House of Representatives, has revealed that many All Progressive Congress (APC) lawmakers are willing to leave the party and the possibility of the All Progressives Congress (APC) losing most of its legislators.
Elumelu made the revelation on Thursday, April 29, at the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abuja.
According to the PDP lawmaker, his APC counterparts are tired of the many failures of the ruling party and are ready to leave it anytime soon.
One of the national dailies also reported. His claim: “…given our unrelenting efforts, many of our colleagues in the APC have seen reasons to join forces with us and they have expressed their readiness to cross over to our party for the patriotic task ahead.”
He listed misrule, terrorism, mass killings, kidnapping, banditry, youth restiveness, economic hardship, unemployment, hunger, and utter hopelessness as ugly incidents under the watch of the APC that have eroded the gains of the PDP when it was in power.
The lower chamber’s minority leader said: “Sadly, these lofty gains have been wrecked within a space of six years by the overtly inept, corrupt, divisive, and insensitive APC administration. We have never had it this bad in the history of our nation and Nigerians are crying out in pain.”
Meanwhile, prominent members of the PDP, including governors and senators, had visited Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara state in a bid to stop his reported moves to return to the APC. The PDP governors and other chieftains of the party met with Governor Matawalle in Gusau, the state capital, on Wednesday, April 7. The governors in attendance were: Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Darius Ishaku (Taraba), Nyesom Wike (Rivers), Bala Mohammed (Bauchi), and Umaru Fintiri (Adamawa).
