Deputy Senate Minority Leader, Emmanuel Bwacha, has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) is secretly weeping over the mass defection of its members in the National Assembly. Bwacha, representing Taraba South on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, noted that the APC was only comforting itself by claiming that the development would not affect its chances in the 2019 general elections.
The lawmaker spoke in Jalingo while fielding questions from journalists. His words: “In 2014, when members of PDP moved to APC, we said they are inconsequential, downgrading the leaders who are actually powerful individuals in their respective places.
“These leaving APC are leaders elected by people in their various places and cannot be written off. They (APC) are only saying this to comfort themselves, so others will not be demoralised.”
Bwacha further mocked the ruling party, saying some people were already addressing him as Deputy Majority Leader ahead of PDP’s expected dominance when the chamber resumes from recess.
