    The sudden decision of President Muhammadu to embark on a 10-day vacation to the United Kingdom by has been attributed to his inability to handle the gale of defection rocking his All Progressives Congress (APC).

    Disclosing this Thursday at the Plateau State secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a member of the House of Representatives representing Barkin Ladi/Riyom Federal Constituency, Hon. Istifanus Dung Gyang, who went to the secretariat to present his letter of intention to run for Plateau North senatorial zone seat in the 2019 general elections, added that the president was rattled that he just needed some rest.

    According to him, “President Buhari was obviously arrested by the fever of defections of prominent APC members who have returned to their real home, the PDP, and has therefore forced him on compulsory vacation before the final vacation comes 2019.

    “When the leadership of the PDP took time to apologise to Nigerians in a way of repentance, and when you sincerely repent, God will surely forgive you. God has forgiven the PDP and he has also visited the PDP with blessings of mass defection,” he said.

    The lawmaker said his aspirations to represent the Plateau North in the Senate was borne out of desire to sacrifice more for development of the state, to consolidate on the achievements of Senator Jonah David Jang in the state.

    He said, “I am going to serve the good people of Plateau because I have the confidence that as a democrat, I will promote democratic tenets by organizing them into platform for proper dialogue.”
