Defections will not affect Tinubu – APC chieftain

Former Lagos State Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Henry Ajomale, says the defections across the APC would not affect the 2023 campaign of the presidential candidate of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Speaking with reporters during a telephone interview, Ajomale berated members of the party who dumped the APC for other political parties.

He admitted that such a move is expected during a build-up to every major election, and also expressed confidence that it won’t have any serious implications for the party in 2023.

“I don’t see any serious implication there because the presidential election will be the first to be conducted. Once Asiwaju wins, his victory will dictate the voting patterns in other polls like the senatorial, House of Reps, governorship, and LGAs.

“Another reason I think this current defection won’t trouble the APC presidential candidate one bit is that many of them didn’t move directly to the PDP,” he said.

Ajomale, who disclosed that he couldn’t blame many of them, admitted that “this is the season of defection for many politicians”.
