Buni openly revealed one thing that can help the All Progressives Congress, APC, to win the November 6 election in Anambra. According to a report by The Punch, Buni told the party members that defection is helping APC already and it can help the party to win Anambra in the coming election. He said this while inaugurating the APC National Reconciliation Committee. The nine member Committee is headed by former Governor of Nasarawa State, Senator Abdullahi Adamu.

How true is Buni's revelation ahead of the Anambra election?
Defection can prove to be an effective strategy by a political to win an election. What matters is if the party plans it well, applies it well and plays its cards wisely ahead of the election. These are the things that will make the defection strategy effective. Truly, APC has consciously been using defection strategy to win over key members of the opposition party in Anambra State.

It started with capturing key members of the second most powerful and popular party in the state, that is, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. Over the period, APC won over Senator Joy Emodi, Senator Stella Oduah, Ex-Minister of State for Transport, John Emeka, PDP Compere, Chris Chikwelu, some PDP Chieftains and many other key PDP members including some PDP members in the Anambra State House of Assembly.

As if that was not enough, APC then added members of the ruling party in Anambra to its target. In this regard, APC succeeded in convincing some key members of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) to defect to its fold. So far, the following APGA members have joined APC: Former Anambra Speaker, Rita Maduagwu, former governorship aspirant, Chuma Nzeribe, some APGA Lawmakers in the Anambra House of Assembly and some other members of the party. What's more? APC is still looking for ways to win more PDP and APGA members to its fold ahead of the election.

Although, Governor Willie Obiano had boosted that his party would win landslide if Anambra State governorship election was free, fair and credible. He made this disclosure while blasting the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, for threatening that a state of emergency may be imposed in Anambra. But, Buni and his party believe that with the level of work they are doing and the calibre of top politicians they have won over with their teaming supporters through defection, APC can win the election. Buni may have revealed a bigger picture of their plan. After all, anything can happen in politics. Will his claim work?
