In this interview Yekini Nabena, speaks about the party’s insistence on the removal of the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, defections from the APC and other national issues
*The only reason many people believe is responsible for the gale of defection in APC is the party’s failure to deliver on the change it promised Nigerians, do you agree?*
Which defection are you talking about? Several of your party members including the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal and so many others… All the people that left our party were those who left based on their personal interests; it has nothing to do with our performance or lack of it. Take Saraki for example, he left the party because we could not offer what he was asking for.
*He had this to say regarding the defectors:*
Now, look at the agricultural sector, these are things that can speak for themselves, the major problem is that people are expecting the flow of easy money like it used to happen during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan but now you must work for every kobo you get, no more free money anywhere.
The way they used to share the money is no longer there. They are angry because Buhari is not sharing money. So, some of them are defecting because of that. When you work and get paid, you will spend such money wisely; nobody will go out and spend the money he genuinely earns carelessly.
