Saraki, Kwara governor finally leave APC for PDP

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, have left the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The duo announced this via their Twitter handle on Tuesday evening.

However, he is yet to announce the party he will be joining.

Saraki’s defection has been largely expected from Nigerians especially after all the federal lawmakers from his Kwara State left the APC last week.
The Senate President is expected to join the main opposition party, Peoples Democractic Party (PDP).

“I wish to inform Nigerians that, after extensive consultations, I have decided to take my leave of the All Progressives Congress (APC),” he wrote.

“Following consultations and in response to calls by major stakeholders in the state, I have moved to the PDP as APC can no longer serve as a platform for achieving the aspirations and expectations of my people,” the governor wrote.
