PDP Defectors Seeking Contracts, Employment –Ekweremadu
Senate Deputy President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, said those that defected from PDP to APC in the South East have no electoral value and that they were joining the APC for contracts and employment opportunities.
He made the disclosure on Thursday in Abuja during the expanded caucus meeting, attended by some governors and other key stakeholders of the party.
“For my brothers and sisters from the South East who are defecting from PDP to APC, our people know the electoral value of each and everyone of us.
“We should allow them get the contract and employment they are looking for. At the appropriate time, we will know who is who in the South East. There is nothing to worry about, we are completely in control,” Ekweremadu stated.
Former Governor of Akwa Ibom State and Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio, while speaking, disclosed that about 20 serving senators of the APC have made known their intention to join PDP.
Two governors, six deputy governors, as well as members of the Board of Trustees (BoT) and National Assembly caucus attended the meeting presided over by Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi.
