The much speculated mass defection of aggrieved members of the ruling APC has finally happened with the Senate President Abubakar Bukola Saraki leading some fifteen (15) senators to dump the party yesterday. It is also almost certain that not less than three sitting governors are ready to join the defection train.
The planned defection of the Senator Saraki led nPDP which recently broke away from the mainstream APC to for rAPC has dominated the public arena but nobody was able to predict exactly when the political hurricane would blow.
So it was a pleasantly surprised nation that watched the drama of the detection which played out on the floor of the Nigerian Senate on Tuesday.
