Several congratulatory and welcome messages have trailed the defection of the Senate president, Bukola Saraki and the Kwara State governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed from APC to PDP yesterday.
The duo announced their exit from the ruling party, All Progressive Congress(APC), on Tuesday.
While Ahmed said he was returning to the PDP, which he dumped prior the 2015 general elections, Saraki did not state if he is returning to the PDP.
Several PDP chieftains have been making welcome statements and sending congartulatory messages to the duo as they add to the ranks of the opposition in a bid to snatch power from the ruling APC in 2019.
See some messages below:
Today, I am excited to welcome home to the @OfficialPDPNig, the very sagacious and excellent leader and president of the @NGRSenate, Distinguished Sen. @bukolasaraki. The @APCNigeria failed at putting you down, and inadvertently succeeded in making you stronger. Welcome home 🙂 pic.twitter.com/7ku1zeZRNP

I therefore not only welcome @bukolasaraki’s resignation from the APC, I also urge him to go one step further and join the only party capable of enshrining genuine democracy in Nigeria as well as lasting economic progress.
