Not more than 42 hours after Senate President Bukola Saraki announced their defection from All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday, Sen. Lanre Tejuoso and Senator Adesoji Akanbi have returned to back to APC on Wednesday.
Tejuoso, representing Ogun Central, announced his return at a meeting between APC Senators and President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock on Wednesday night.
While introducing himself to the President, he said:
“Mr. President, your son has returned home.”ADVERTISEMENT
Also at the meeting was Senator Adesoji Akanbi, Oyo South, who Saraki also announced to have joined the PDP.
He emphatically denied the list of defectors as dubious the following day, saying he remains a member of the APC. His showing up at the meeting with President Buhari affirmed his faith in the APC.
Senator Shehu Sani from Kaduna, who has been blowing hot and cold about his political allegiance, was also at the meeting, exchanging banters with his colleagues.
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, believed to be hobnobbing with the PDP, was among those who were not at the meeting.
With Tejuoso and Akanbi and Sani now firmly identifying with the APC, the party has now increased its majority in the Upper Chamber to 54, enough to dictate the direction of policy.Do you ever witness news, videos, articles, or photos that you believe it's good and rich for our blog?, or do you have a true life story that you would want us to feature on our blog; Adamawa Celebrities News?
