As soon as the presidential (s)election result was announced declaring Buhahari the winner, several prominent PDP members were already plotting how to join the winning APC.
Not belonging to the ruling party means that there may be a shortage of “democrazy dividends” coming your way.
About nine PDP governors are reportedly planning to switch to APC, including Benue State governor Gabriel Suswam and former minister of justice Mike Aondoakaa.
Hope Uzodinma, the chairman of the senate committee on aviation, who has just been re-elected in Imo West, is planning to switch from PDP to APC, possibly before the year runs out, or early next year. He knows he will not chair any committees in an APC-majority senate, with the financial advantages that come with it, and Buhahari is likely to cancel a massive contract he was awarded in Cross River State by the Jonathan administration.
These politricksters always follow the money, which makes you wonder about the followers that take them seriously.
