Defector’s exit triumph to APC – Buhari’s aide, Sammani



The Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Political Matters, Hon. Gideon Sammani has said that the exit of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and others was a triumph to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

He described those defecting from the ruling party to other political parties as politicians with blind ambitions.

Speaking at the inauguration of the State Executive Council of the National Youth Support Movement for Buhari/Osibanjo 2019, in conjunction with Progressive Women’s Front International on Thursday in Calabar, Sammani said the defectors were desperate people.

“The defectors are those with blind ambition and are desperate to cling power even when they don’t have the requisite capacity to match President Buhari, neither can they rule the country and turnaround its ailing economy which was brought to its knees by past administrators.

“These set of politicians had in the past carried bags of money to voters so that they can be voted into power; unfortunately Nigerian voters knew that they were not the right caliber of politicians who could manage the economy of the nation.

“It is a disgrace to the nation, their exit will be a triumph and success for the APC; don’t allow the ongoing defection to discourage you and don’t feel disappointed at all, we are not afraid because they are not a threat at all.

“Like water, it will always find its level, these people are not in the same level with Mr. President, and they lost election to Mr. President who is well trusted by many Nigerians. It is a disgrace to the nation,” he said.

Another presidential aide, who also doubled as Chairman for the occasion and Guest Speaker at the event, Alhaji Muhktar Abba urged the Party supporters not to be deterred by the gale of defections that hit the party in the last one week, adding that it was a time to see those who were the true members of the APC.

“Don’t allow the gale of defection to discourage or weaken you, with APC tomorrow is assured. After darkness comes light,” he said.

He said that those accusing Buhari of not doing enough in the transformation of the economy were the ones who were not in touch with modern trend or not conversant with current economic trend in Nigeria.

“The social intervention programme like the N-Power graduate programme and home grown feeding programme initiated by President Muhammadu Buhari was enough to attest to the fact that the president meant well for the country,” he stated.
