Saraki receives 3000 APC defectors in Kwara

Senate President Abubakar Bukola Saraki on Monday received over 3000 members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara who defected into the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Receiving them in Ilorin, Kwara state capital, Saraki said a PDP administration in 2019 will benefit them than the ruling APC.

The defectors said they left the party because of the internal squabbles among their leaders and lack of unity of purpose amongst them.

“There is no Kwaran in the APC who has sufficient clout to influence issues for Kwara at the federal level. It will be a great mistake for anyone in the state to trust the ruling federal party,” he said.
