The deputy-director of the Buhari Support Organizations(BSO), Chief Blessing Agbomhere and 26,318 members and supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Etsako central local government area of Edo state have defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Agbomhere who worked for the election of Buhari said the poverty inflicted by the current administration had forced thousands of illegal migrants from Nigeria to cross the desert by trekking and sailing the Mediterranean Sea in inflated balloons to Europe.

He said: "the editorial opinion of international and domestic media, especially those who endorsed Buhari's candidacy in 2015 have indicated that APC administration is failing and as much as I have resisted the temptation to criticize the administration as a mother won't castigate her child in public, my loyalty to Nigeria and my obedience to Godly injunctions in the Holy Bible and the Noble Quran which have formed our national ethical responsibilities as enshrined in the Constitution, and my commitment to good governance will not permit me to maintain silence or remain in the APC".

"Rather than deepening democracy and good governance, the APC administration has squandered its goodwill, and deepened corruption and abuse of public trust."

The former APC chieftain said he and others who supported Buhari hoped that the president will fulfill his promises to Nigerians, but that the nation has never been this disunited, with insecurity threatening the survival citizens everywhere in Nigeria.

Meanwhile, the APC has assured the United Kingdom that the President Buhari-led federal government is committed to delivering on its 2015 campaign promises to Nigerians.

A statement by the party’s media office said the national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, gave the assurance when receiving a delegation of the UK in Abuja on Tuesday, January 30.

Odigie-Oyegun highlighted the achievements recorded by the Buhari-led administration in the areas of economic diversification, infrastructure, anti-corruption and security, particularly in the northeast.
