The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu is worried over the surge in the federal lawmakers leaving the party.
He spoke after a private meeting with APC members at the National Assembly on Wednesday, June 22.
Senator Adamu acknowledged that despite the party’s concerns over the exodus of members; nothing could be done to stop it.
The APC Chairman asserted that defections are common in election years; specifically, because people can freely test their popularity in other political parties; especially if they are unhappy with the results of the party primaries.
This was coming a day after two senators from the party defected to the Peoples Democratic Party.
The senators are Ahmed Keita representing Katsina North and Senator Francis Alimikhena representing Edo North.
