Amidst growing apprehension over the gale of defections to the All
Progressives Congress, APC, by notable members of the Peoples Democratic
Party, PDP, the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, has said the party
has nothing to fear over the mass defection into the party.
Buhari said during an interaction with journalists in his Daura residence on Saturday:
“I have no fears of PDP defectors.”
According to him, the PDP chieftains would have very little
influence in the APC government, adding that the PDP bigwigs will be
wise enough not to jostle for positions in the new government.
“I hope the people that are defecting will
accept the fact that they are joining the people who succeeded. So, I
don’t think they will just come and say they want to be ministers next
month simply because they were ministers before.”
