Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu, has expressed serious concerns over the gale of defections rocking the ruling party.

Africa Daily News, New York has earlier reported that no fewer than seven senators had dumped APC for other opposition parties after they failed to secure the governing party’s ticket to contest the 2023 elections in the last one week.

Amongst the members of the red chambers who have so far defected from the APC are Ibrahim Shekarau (Kano), Yahaya Abdullahi (Kebbi) Adamu Aliero (Kebbi), Dauda Jika (Bauchi), Ahmad Babba Kaita (Katsina), Lawal Yahaya Gumau (Bauchi), and Francis Alimikhena (Edo).

Speaking to correspondents after a closed-door meeting with APC senators on Wednesday, Adamu pointed out that it was unfortunate that the lawmakers left the party.

He went on to posit that the defections were not unexpected given the fact that it’s an electioneering season when the country usually witness all ‘manner of things’ takes centre stage.

He said: ‘In every election year, these kinds of subs steps give cause for people, stakeholders to sneeze. Nigeria is not an exception and the APC is not an exception.

‘So, I don’t give a damn what is happening in other parties, I care about what is happening in our party.

You know that it is not just in APC that this thing is happening. Because we are the ruling party, our problems are more prominent in the public glare.

‘No responsible leader would not worry about losing one member, not to talk of two, three.

At the moment we are faced with the stark reality of their problems but we are committed with my colleagues in the National Working Committee to face the problems squarely and solve them by the grace of God.’

Meanwhile a former Minister of Aviation in the country, Chief Femi Fani Kayode has declared that no fewer than 22 Senators are holding discussions with the PDP to join the opposition party.
