No fewer than 22 Senators on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress may dump the APC for the main opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP, a chieftain of the ruling APC, Femi Fani-Kayode has hinted.
According to a statement issued via the verified Twitter handle of Fani-Kayode on Wednesday, the Senators are threatening to decamp the PDP because they have been denied the tickets to return to the Senate.
Meanwhile, the National Chairman of the APC, Adamu Abdullahi had met with the party’s senators on Wednesday.
It was learnt that the number of APC senators has been reduced to 62, by the virtue of those senators who failed to secure return tickets to the chamber.
The Senators include Senator Dauda Jika representing Bauchi Central and elected on the platform of the APC; and Senator Ezenwa Francis Onyewuchi representing Imo East Senatorial District, who was elected on the platform of the PDP.
