PDP Persuades APC Federal Lawmakers With Automatic Tickets
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP is wooing All Progressives Congress Federal lawmakers with an automatic ticket, a source has revealed.
It was learnt that there might be a mass defection of the senators and some House of Representatives members to PDP so as to retain their seats at the National Assembly.
According to investigations, some of the senators and members of the federal house of reps are not in good term with their state governors who are also nursing the ambition of contesting for senatorial posts.
It was gathered that governors who had spent two terms in office were warming up to contest while the current senators were not ready to quit their position.
The source stated that most of the senators who defected to APC from PDP in 2014 had been forming a new alliance to retrace their steps to the PDP where an automatic ticket is waiting for them.
“This is PDP strategy and I think it is going to work for the party,” a member of the House of Representatives told our correspondent.
He stated that the APC national caucus has also been briefed on the development and it appears that President Muhammadu Buhari will intervene now.
The president would have to sort out the crisis within APC, most especially at the state level, without which things might go worse, the source noted.
