Senator Lawan Debunks Rumour of His Defection to PDP

By Collins Mbakwe

The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan has urged the general public to discountenance the viral video purporting his defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) while describing it as the handiwork of mischief-makers.

In a release by the Special Adviser (Media) to President of the Senate, Ola Awoniyi, Lawan explained that the original video clip which was mischievously edited to 26 seconds, is a 3 minutes 30 seconds clip of the Senate President reading the letter by Senator Muhammad Adamu Ailero of Kebbi State, informing his colleagues at plenary of his defection from the APC to the PDP over issues in the state chapter of the APC.

He wondered, “how could the Senate President have made such an announcement at plenary either on Tuesday or Wednesday without it being reported by journalists who covered the proceedings?”

“The fact is that, at the commencement of the session on Tuesday, the Senate President read out some correspondences, one of which was the said letter written by Senator Aliero.
