Some chieftains of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will soon join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), former Senate President, Bukola Saraki hinted on Tuesday.
Bukola, who stated this when he featured on Arise News, suggested that some top APC chieftains would defect towards the 2023 general elections.
He argued that bigwigs do not defect at an early stage.
“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,” Saraki said.
The PDP had itself witnessed the defection of some chieftains to the ruling APC.
State governors like Ben Ayade of Cross River, Dave Umahi of Ebonyi, and Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State, have defected to the ruling party.
PDP, which is the main opposition party in the country, lost power in the 2015 general elections, in which current president, Muhammadu Buhari defeated then President, Goodluck Jonathan.
