Nothing for you, Buhari tells PDP hustlers
President elect, Muhammadu Buhari has told politicians leaving their party, especially the PDP, to join the APC, not to expect to be assigned any prominent position in his government, but prepare to play second fiddle.
Buhari who spoke with reporters in Daura, Sunday, however assured all defectors that they would be treated in a just and fair manner in an APC led government.
According to him, “For those that are coming into the APC, I have no fear because we have our party structure. The fact that you were a party chairman or you were a minister before you joined the APC, we appreciate the fact that you remain relevant in your immediate locality. But when it comes to the centre, there is some equality in the way the government will handle you.
“If we win majority of members of the National Assembly and Houses of Assembly in the states, it means that it is with the agreement of their constituencies that the federal government has the power that it has. If the federal government is insisting on accountability and being responsible, even if they go back to their constituencies, there is nothing they can do about the decision of the government”, he stated.
