The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, says the All Progressives Congress (APC) will experience what he described as “defection tsunami” soon.

He spoke against the backdrop of defection of members of the PDP in some states like Kogi and Adamawa.

For example, a former Special Adviser on Political Matters to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Ahmed Gulak, had led 16 other chieftains and supporters of the PDP to the APC in Adamawa,  on Saturday.

Those who left the PDP with him included Chief Felix  Tangwami,  Chief Medan Teneke, Alhaji Saidu Aliyu and Alhaji Yusuf Dan-Umana.

Gulak had claimed that he and his co-defectors left the main opposition party because of alleged impunity in the party.

“It is time for us to formally register as APC members. It is time to formally bury the PDP in Adamawa State,” Gulak said during the defection.

Though Secondus said the PDP regretted the defection of its members, he said it was better to go into election with people who the party was sure would work for its success.

The national chairman of the PDP, who spoke with our correspondent in an interview in Abuja on Wednesday,  insisted that the national leadership and other stakeholders of the party were working hard to make sure that the party would win the 2019 elections.
