Segun Sowunmi, a former spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has disclosed plans to defect to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
He urged a fellow ex-Atiku’s campaign spokesman, Daniel Bwala, to keep a space for him in the APC because he might dump the PDP.
Bwala had vowed to support President Bola Tinubu after a visit to the Presidential Villa.
Sowunmi anchored his proposed defection to APC on the refusal of PDP members to reform the party.
Speaking on a Twitter space with the topic: ‘PDP leadership and role of opposition in democracy’, he said: ”Am I going to criticise President Bola Tinubu more than the one I have been criticising him? Am I going to fight him more than the one I have been fighting him?
”I have known this man since 1993 by name and by voice. And yet, on behalf of this party and for the benefit of this party, I am closing my eyes to everything.
”The person that was president in 1999, is he still a member of their party today? The one that said he didn’t have shoes – Jonathan – that we gave him presidency two times.
”Because of Jonathan, we became a party that everybody was abusing. He is not still standing with the party today.
”I am still here standing and shouting. If they don’t want us to reform the party, please o, Bwala o Bwala, Bwala, Bwala, keep space for me, I am coming.”
