buhari statement saraki defection

President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed his total commitment to the values of democracy, freedom of choice as well as total willingness to work with all members of the National Assembly, irrespective of their political party, for the benefit of the nation.

In his reaction to the developments Tuesday morning at the National Assembly, the President noted that none of the defecting federal lawmakers of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had any specific grievances against him or the government he leads; neither did he harbour anything against any of them.

“As the saying goes, all politics is local. We understand that some of the distinguished and honourable lawmakers have issues with their home states, especially on zoning which bars some of them from seeking another term in their constituencies,” he said.

Noting that the APC had done its utmost to stop the defections, the President commended the leadership of the party for relentlessly working for its unity and ensuring success in the upcoming elections.

President Buhari assured members of the APC of his total support and urged party faithful not to despair but to see the defections as a seasonal occurrence that happens on election eve.

He expressed confidence that no harm or injury will be done to the party and its aspirations by the movements.

President Buhari wished all the decamped members the best in their future undertakings.

    The are thieves. They keep defecting back and forth. Nigerians need to see beyond parties and look at both major parties as same coin from different angles. They are all politicians. Nigerians don’t think. They are clouded by parties. The blame party in govt while praising underdog. By the time underdogged party gain power, their performance is not different and you start seeing deflection again and their party is blamed.

    You forget too quick that it is the same people ruling both parties. And politicians keep you untaught to keep blaming parties while they loot you dry. Nigerians should focus on politicians themselves in stead of parties.
