Speaking with newsmen after a closed-door meeting with the senators at the National Assembly on Wednesday, Adamu noted that the wave of defection among the lawmakers has is gving the party a cause for concern.
According to him, the meeting between the leadership and the lawmakers was fruitful.
He said, “The issue of defection is an unfortunate development when it happens but this is a season where there is all sort of behaviours in the political space and ours is not an exception.
“In every election year, this kind of thing gives cause for stakeholders to sneeze and Nigeria is not an exception so is the APC, not an exception. I don’t care about what is happening in other parties, my focus is on the APC. But we all know that the occurrence is not only happening in the APC, it’s happening across other political parties too. And because we are the ruling party, our problems are exaggerated before the public.”
