Senators and House of Representatives members involved in the Reformed-All Progressives Congress(R-APC) “plot” may be denied tickets to return to the parliament, sources close to the ruling party said yesterday.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will not concede automatic tickets to defecting R-APC senators and representatives, The Nation learnt.
The APC’s tough stance accounted for why its National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole did not make any commitment last Thursday, when the party’s House of Representatives Caucus demanded automatic tickets for its members in 2019.
Between 30 and 40 per cent of senators and House of Representatives members, many of them unpopular in their constituencies, are believed to be involved in the R-APC “plot”.
