Senators Set To Dump PDP

There are strong indications that about 11 senators on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the North West geopolitical zone are on the verge of dumping the party for the All Progressives Congress (APC), following what they described as the highhandedness of the ruling party.

A source at Wednesday’s meeting of the PDP senators disclosed that 11 senators of the PDP from the North West have threatened to dump the party in view of what they consider as handedness of the party, adding that it was unfortunate that the party appears not to appreciate the hard times they were going through because of their unflinching support and loyalty.

The senators warming up to ditch PDP, we gathered, are drawn from the six states of the North West, Kaduna, Kano, Jigawa, Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara. Already katsina has no PDP senator going by the 2011 senatorial election and the 11 senators were drawn from the remaining states that make up the zone.
