Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has disclosed that 22 senators from the ruling All Progressing Congress have threatened to defect to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Fani-Kayode, who disclosed this via his official Twitter handle, claimed that the senators threatened to dump APC because they lost during the party’s primary election.
He said the ruling party can’t afford to lose the 22 senators ahead of the 2023 general elections while urging the APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, to reach out to them and resolve the issue immediately.
KEMI FILANI NEWS had earlier reported that Adamu lamented the departure of APC senators to other parties ahead of the 2023 elections.
He wrote: “22 APC Senators are threatening to decamp to PDP because they have been denied the tickets to return to the Senate.
“This is serious and something must be done to prevent it. Many are concerned and we urge our able National Chairman National . Secretary to reach them. We cannot afford to lose them.”
