How Saraki’s defection will affect Buhari, APC ― Balarabe Musa

Musa, Saraki, Buhari, APCFORMER governor of Kaduna state, Alh. Balarabe Musa has observed that the defection of Senate President, Bukola Saraki to all the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will affect the fortunes of President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.

The former Governor who was speaking on the defection in an interview on Wednesday warned that Saraki’s defection will seriously affect President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC during the 2019 general elections.

Recall that Saraki had on Tuesday officially renounced his membership of the ruling APC to join the opposition Peoples Democratic Party( PDP).

The National leader of the People’s Redemption Party (PRP) said that the ruling APC was in “greater trouble,” as Saraki’s exit signified the “demise” of the party.

According to him, “Saraki’s defection from APC was much expected and the party is in greater trouble now because his defection signifies the demise of the APC in spite of whoever remains now in the party.

“The consequences of this defection for the country and the party can only be imagined.

“Saraki’s defection will seriously affect Buhari, the party and the country in 2019, but if it can be managed, is also a different thing which we wait to see. This resignation is not something that can be dismissed except its that of an ordinary charlatan.
