There were claims that Fulani-Balogun defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, with the Saraki, who was the leader of the APC in the state.
But responding to questions from Punch, the party chairman said, “I have not defected. All my executives at the state level have not equally defected. We were formally elected. Why should we defect? We have not defected from the party.
“I was not there when he (Saraki) defected and I was not there during the harmonisation meeting. How can I be going from one place to the other? I am the chairman of APC; I cannot be at a PDP event at all.
“That is a blatant lie. How can you claim that someone has defected and has not told anybody or made a public declaration of his defection and you are saying you think.
“You think what? Can you think for someone? I am a man of myself and I know what I can do. How can you say because someone defected, all the executive members of the party have defected?
“I remember in Benue and Sokoto, the state governors, Samuel Ortom and Aminu Tambuwal, respectively, defected from the APC to the PDP. The executives of the party were not dissolved.
“So, why should it be different in Kwara State? For me, they are just making assumptions. They think that because the Senate President left, I have defected.
“No! I am still in the APC. We, as a party, know what it takes to be a party. We, the executive, contested elections and we won. So, why should we leave the party? I am still the chairman of the party; I am not going anywhere.” SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
