Saraki, Ahmed’s Defection SHAKES Kwara APC.. 23 Assembly Members Have Defected To PDP

23 members of the Kwara State House of Assembly, KHAS, defected this morning to the leading opposition, PDP.

This is coming after Senate President, Bukola Saraki, a son of the soil and the State Governor, Abdulfatai Ahmed defected yesterday to PDP yesterday.

Reading out a joint letter appended to by all defecting members, Rt. Hon. Alli Ahmad, speaker of the state legislature, stated that the members alleged that their move was informed by factionalisation of the ruling party at the local level.

At the end of reading of the letter, the speaker, himself, appended his signature to the list of defectors which already had his name as one of the defectors.

“I am so happy leaving the APC today,” he said.

A lot of top politicians in the state have also formally defected.
