A former member of the House of Representatives has expressed doubts over the genuine intention of members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) joining the All Progressives Congress (APC), saying they could be acting as moles in the party.
The former lawmaker, Dr Haruna Yerima, who is a member of the APC merger committee, said PDP moles, who found their way into APC, would be closely monitored to prevent them from destroying the party.
“As APC grows stronger, many politicians of different strength and characteristics are coming to join the party,” he said yesterday.
“We are becoming apprehensive because these politicians are going to come in with their own interest and baggage, particularly PDP baggage.
“Do not also forget that there were some people who were seriously against the presidential ambition of General Muhammadu Buhari and even when we were in ANPP there were some moles among us that worked for PDP but they were inside ANPP. These characters are still around in APC now.
“I want to make it abundantly clear to all those interests that are coming into APC that Buhari must become the presidential candidate. He has no alternative; he either becomes the presidential candidate of APC or the APC will collapse,” he said.
“All those that are coming in from PDP should forget about their PDP antics. Those moles that we inherited particularly in ANPP, that are now in APC, that might want continue to play the role of moles and work for PDP in APC, should get this message clear”, he added.
