The defection of over 20,000 APC members to PDP in Kwara state may not have any impact on APC in the state. Recalled that over 20,000 APC members defected to the main opposition Party in the state, PDP. The defection hit the APC due to the crisis rocking the Party. Though The Party is currently facing serious challenges but that doesn't give the PDP automatic ticket to win the forthcoming Governorship Polls in the state.
The PDP is also facing its own challenges in the country and it is not sure the crisis will be settled before the Governorship Polls in the state. Meanwhile, the APC members that defected to the Peoples Democratic party PDP in the state are not the real voters, they are Politicians in the state. The real voters will determine the Party that will win the forthcoming Polls in the state.There is tendency that these People that defected to PDP may still come back to APC before the Governorship Polls in the state. The PDP should not be happy too much about the defection of APC members into the Party because majority of these People will defect back to the their Party which is the APC. It should be recalled that Senator Bukola Saraki defected to the Peoples Democratic Party PDP before the 2019 Governorship election in the state.
The 20,000 APC members that defected to PDP may not affect the APC in the state. Though, Saraki who is the PDP chieftain and other members of the Party will work seriously for the PDP. Saraki will work with the APC members who have just defected into the Party to defeat APC. The crisis between the Governor Abdulrasaq Abdulrahmon and other Aggrieved members of the Party has caused great setback for the Party but nevertheless, the Party will still win the forthcoming Polls, despite the fact that Some Leaders of the APC are seriously fighting the Governor in the state.
The APC will use every resources in his Capacity to retain the Governorship seat beyond the 2023 Governorship Polls. The APC has tasted Power and they know how sweet it is to be in the corridor of Power. Therefore, any it may not be possible for the PDP to defeat APC in the state. Recalled that Senator Gbemisola Saraki and Lai Muhammad are not in the same camp with the Governor but this does not give the PDP an edge over the APC in the state.
