Decampees are masquerades with very little or no electoral value – Oshiomhole
According to him, the ‘decampees’ were not people of honour but those motivated by personal interest.
Speaking with Statehouse correspondents after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, Oshiomhole noted that the APC was not worried after 15 senators and about 37 house of representatives members left the APC for other political parties.
“The thing going on is that we have a lot of so-called big masquerades with very little or no electoral value,” Oshiomhole noted
“If the only motivation is personal interest, what is the need for me, what have I gained, if that is the basis, the earlier for those in this business for personal gain return to where they belong, the better.
“The party that I am privileged to chair is not worried at all, we are not disturbed, I am not going to miss my sleep.
“Go to the campaign, check the electoral results you will find that a lot of those who claimed to have decamped on a good day, the votes they got that made them members of the senate, our president got much more votes in their constituencies. So, we are not fooled at all.”
