APC NASS Members List Conditions To Return To PDP
Senators and House of Representatives members under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has listed conditions to return to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.
Recall that prior to the 2015 general elections, some members of the National Assembly under the platform of the PDP decamped to APC. Some also made their intention known at the floor of the red and green chambers.
The PDP has however commenced secret talks with some APC Senators and members of the House of Representatives for the purpose of luring them.
But most of those contacted want an automatic return ticket to the National Assembly.
The party is yet to accede to the request.
A top source, who spoke in confidence with The Nation, said: “Apart from some former governors and ex-leaders who defected to APC, the opposition party has opened talks with some Senators and members of the House of Representatives to defect to PDP.
“Some of those affected include Senators and Representatives as ‘electoral assets’ who can give APC a good fight in 2019 in their districts and constituencies.
“A few of the Senators are also technically no longer in APC due to alleged disagreement with their governors and party leaders.
“The secret talks have started with the hope that PDP might strengthen its hold as an opposition party.
“The legal implications of the defection of the lawmakers are being looked into by a team.”
