  1. DEFECTION EVERYWHERE WITHOUT A CLEAR POLITICAL IDEOLOGY AND MANIFESTO.PLEASE OUR POLITICAL SHOULD LEARN HOW TO PLAY POLITICS NOT TOYING WITH PEOPLES VOTE.

  2. Election is near so everyone is trying to protect there head. And you are free to choose your favorite political party.

  3. Keep jumping from one party to the other, clowns. This shows that they are all corrupt and they show no solidarity

  4. Politics in Nigeria is nonsense. People will be jumping from one party to another. Mr lawmaker you have taken a wise decision because PDP is a goal ‘the ruling party come 2019

  10. God please give us a leader after your own heart in Nigeria. even unstable law makers. to the extent that our own Nigeria is even unstable, unstable leaders.

  11. This is a great plus to PDP… I hope they take advantage of that to inflict pain to APC in the forth coming election.

  12. You made the decision on a purpose, you know the best for yourself, ride on with which ever party you are pleased with

  13. Hmmmm, what a wind of change immediately Atiku Abubarkar became PDP Presidential aspirant. I wish you good luck in your political pollination.

  14. Everyone of them are just selfish and self centred looking for where all the election bounties can be reaped without considering its effects on the masses

  15. This is what is called political prostitution. Maybe God safe us from this politicians jumping here and there.

  16. this is the time you will be seeing many of them moving from one party to another, there’s nothing new in it.

  17. All our politicians are confused. This is time for them to be jumping from one party to another.

  18. God will bless us with good leader with better understanding of true democracy …..they are best of the same feather…

  19. Confusion as always. Its not the party but the individual himself. Jumping doesn’t make u better or worse

  20. Election is near so everyone is trying to protect there head. And you are free to choose your favorite political party

  21. Most this our leaders dont have choice they join any reigning and ruling party just to get what they want.

  22. Most this our leaders are confused they dont have choice they join any reigning and ruling party just to get what they want.

  23. Be it APC or PDP the question is are they doing it for people or to fufill their selfish ambition because changing from one party to the other does not make man rigtheous.

  24. Defection, Defection virtually in every state of the federation right now,PDP is gaining ground every day I think APC should restrategis if they want to win the next year general election

  25. Lol,Nigeria politicians would always be funny people, just because you know that APC would loose that’s why you joined PDP

  26. More apc to pdp defects by each day…. I dont know what to say… This is becoming a game. A dirty one at that.

  27. We all know you politicians are playing games, keep jumping about from party to party…. We will see where it ends

  28. Everyone goes to where he will be favoured most, so that’s what all these politicians are doing, looking for where there are possibilities.

  29. looking a at the rate of defection and how its been done or how it happens this days in nigeria , a bill should be passed that will regulate it, because its becoming a childs play.

  30. This is not news in Nigeria. We’re used to it. That’s how we roll. After the next tenure, feel free to swop again.

  31. There Should Be Law Banning Politicians Jumping Ship Without Concrete Reasons To Do So, Politicians Dont Jump Defect In Advanced Countries, It Is Only In Nigeria That Politicians Will Be Jumping From One Party To The Other Without Any Concrete Reasons. Too Bad

  32. Am yet to see a national running backwardly as this my country called Nigeria. What has he done for the past 3½ years?

  33. Unstable law makers. to the extent that our own Nigeria is even unstable, unstable leaders. every thing about Nigeria is unstable too bad

  34. I hope he would stand by this decision even in the bad days. All politicians are always after their own pockets.

  35. PDP making progress in all areas and and getting stronger by the day. But lets Godswill be done in Nigeria

  36. All this cross infestation of political parties will continue as long as people want to retain power at all cost

  37. Is not a new thing. Politicians are known for moving from one party to another. It is in their nature to do so.

  38. I wonder why mst if our politicians will not stay in one political party. jumping from one party to another looking for money

  39. Defection is one of those normal things in Nigeria political system, i pray i doesn’t defect back before election

  40. Any way it’s obvious we are in election time so that’s will be happen this days till the election time for sure

  41. Nigeria and politics.. Jumping from one party to another.. Next election after 2019 they will move to another party again.. That’s why things will be difficult to resolve in Nigeria because it’s same people whether Apc or PDP all na same..

  42. That’s his choice though it’s a game you can be at the left today and cross to the right tomorrow politicians with their tricks chai

  43. All this people saying APC is loosing like you don’t know this country too well,, your vote and support doesn’t count ooo,at the end of the day,, what will happen will happen

  44. This is not new. Cross carpeting is the watchword of politicians during election just to satisfy their selfish interest.
