The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has spoken on the activities of the New Peoples Democratic Party, nPDP, a group within the ruling party.
He said that the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara and others were only acting like people who want the best for themselves. Oyegun ruled out any possibility of the group decamping to other parties.
“I just have a feeling that like all people who want the best terms for themselves, they will come out at a period which they feel is advantageous to them.
“Given the state of the polity, I suppose they chose this time not because they want to leave the APC; not because they were fed up with the APC, not because they want to cause trouble with the APC, but because they want a good deal for themselves
given the totality of what is going on in the party.
“So, we have accepted their protest in good faith, and we are sitting down with them to work out something that will be mutually beneficial
to both interests.”
