APC chieftains advise Buni, drops allegations on why PDP stalwarts are defecting
Meanwhile, for some stakeholders in the APC, the gale of defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is not altogether a welcome development.
Members of the National Committee of APC Support Groups for Senator Al-Makura who have expressed some fears linked to what party chieftains see as a blessing recently sent a communique to the leadership under Mai Mala Buni.
The group in the statement advised Buni to find out the level of commitment and moral background of the new members, especially those from the opposition party.
