The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP may soon face massive disintegration as 20 senators, 50 house of representatives members may defect, Nigerian Tribune says
According to our source, ripples are being generated by the emergence of Ali Modu Sheriff, former governor of Borno State as national chairman of the PDP. Senators of the party from the South-East and South-South zone have resolved not to go with his choice and have threatened to pull out of the party.
A source close to the party who spoke anonymously said, ''The Tsunami that will hit the PDP as a result of this decision will be unimaginable. We have some 20 senators already looking to the door right now. The number of members of the House is around 50. Let’s see how the party can survive that''.
The PDP currently has 47 of the 109 senators and 141 of 360 members of the House of Representatives.
