The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has described some members of the party who defected in the National Assembly as masquerades who have no electoral values and can add nothing to the party.
Oshiomhole who met with President Muhammadu Buhari a few hours after the defection of 15 Senators and 37 members of the House of Representatives, told State House correspondents at the end of the meeting that he and the party were not bothered by the gale of defection as he saw the defectors as people who did not matter.
“My attitude is like I have told you before, as the National Chairman, I am committed to listening to very legitimate grievances and engaging all those who are aggrieved that we can see through their grievances, but I insist that I will not miss sleep for one minute over mercenary activities,” the APC Chairman began.
Continuing, he said:
“I have said it and I want to repeat it that this business of governance must be driven by men and women of honour.
If the only motivation is personal interest; ‘what is in it for me?’ ‘What have I gained?’ and ‘How many people have I done xyz for?’
If that is the basis, the earlier those in this business of personal gains return to where they belong, the better.
This party that I am privileged to chair is not worried at all, we are not disturbed. I am not going to miss my sleep and we will go into the campaign.
Check the electoral results, you will find that a lot of those who claimed to have defected, on a good day, the votes they got that made them members of the Senate, our President got much more votes in their constituencies. So, we are not fooled at all.
The thing going on is that you have a lot of so-called big masqueraders with very little and no electoral value.”

We think you'd love these too...
