The senator representing Borno South, Mohammed Ali Ndume, of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has revealed that about seven senators of Peoples Democratic Party, ( PDP) have concluded plans to decamp to APC.
He said this while speaking to Vanguard, adding that with the new development, APC still has a majority in the Senate, despite the gala of defection that saw sixteen APC senators moved to PDP.
Adding that two senators that are in APGA are working with the APC, while the two seats that are vacant, they are confident that during the August 11, election the seats will belong to APC.
“The defection of our colleagues made us consolidate ourselves. Before we were scattered, we had some of us that are following Saraki and those that are following Saraki neck deep have been posted to PDP by Saraki.
“Now, we have senators who Saraki was thinking he had in his pocket, not knowing they were following him maybe for personal reasons or the like, but when he said we are leaving the party, they said no we are APC and we are still standing with our party.
“Now we know that we have a confirmed simple majority that we would be able to do whatever we want to do in that Senate. If it is going to be voting, we can write people’s name and even say 52 senators are of APC who are in support of whatever Mr President wants.
“Of course, two senators that are even in APGA are in support, working with the APC and, of course, two seats that are vacant and elections are to be done on August 11, we are very confident that the seats belong to APC by God’s grace. So, we would have a comfortable majority,” he said
