“I want to assure you all that APC will soon shock Nigeria’s political space with massive and unprecedented defections ever witnessed in the political history of our great country, and by the grace of God, APC will undoubtedly remain Nigeria’s leading political party.”

Some Nigerians have been reacting to the comments of Governor Buni on social media.

Saint Inno wrote on Twitter:

“Defection is no longer new to us because we see it as an act of irresponsibility on the part of the so-called leaders. Defection is not an achievement but pulling the system backward. Nigerians are wiser now!!!”

“If only Nigerians will see sense and realize that PDP and APC are like 6 and half a dozen. Come 2023 we must look at the individuals and antecedents.”
