Kassim Afegbua, spokesman of the Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC), has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari, is in pain over the exit of key politicians from the ruling party.
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki; Governor of Sokoto, Aminu Tambuwal and former Kano State Governor, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, are among some of the those who defected from the APC recently.
Speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Afegbua insisted that Buhari and APC were in self-denial.
“If you say the Senate president does not have electoral value, good luck to you. If you say Governor Tambuwal of Sokoto does not have electoral value, good luck to you. If you say Kwankwaso does not have, good luck to you.
“But what we are saying is that these are persons when leaving the party, we saw their supporters and crowd who also left with them. So the president may be consoling himself not trying to expose the pain that he’s presently going through.
“And whether you like it not, more members are going to defect from the APC and I can assure you more senators, House of Representatives members will defect, and majority that the APC is claiming will go into insignificance,” he said.
