22 APC Senators To defect To PDP, Says Fani-Kayode

A FORMER Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has sounded the alarm on planned defection of twenty-two Senators from the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Fani-Kayode in a tweet disclosed that 22 senators were threatening to dump APC for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

He claimed that the senators were threatening to dump APC because they lost during the party’s primary election.

He urged the APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu to immediately reach out to them and resolve the issue.

According to Fani-Kayode, the ruling party could not afford to lose 22 senators ahead of the 2023 general elections.

He wrote: “22 APC Senators are threatening to decamp (defect) to PDP because they have been denied the tickets to return to the Senate.

“This is serious and something must be done to prevent it. Many are concerned and we urge our able National Chairman National . Secretary to reach them. We cannot afford to lose them.”

Recall that the National chairman of the APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu , had on Wednesday launched into a trouble-shooting meeting with the APC Senate caucus with a view to soothing frayed nerves.
