Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki has hinted that some leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will soon defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). The former Governor of Kwara State made this known today (Tuesday), noting that the recent defection of some PDP governors like Ben Ayade of Cross River, Dave Umahi of Ebonyi, and Bello Matawalle of Zamfara state to APC wasn’t a surprise. According to him, the opposition party also expected the movement of the governors.

Saraki said Nigerians will “begin to see some defections from the ruling party” soon, adding that “leaders in the ruling parties don’t defect early, they defect late in the game”.

“I don’t think that we (PDP) are hemorrhaging. If you remember, I said a couple of times that there were certain governors that we knew that they were going to leave, and they’ve left. So we are not surprised.

“We’ve got some bigwigs that are coming to the party. This week, there’s a former governor that’ll join the party. We’ve had a couple who have joined.”

“Look, we all know that leaders in the ruling parties don’t defect early. They defect late in the game. So, keep watching. Nigerians will not be surprised when you begin to see some defections from the ruling party,” Saraki said during a chat with Arise TV.
