Defection Not Good For Nigeria’s Democracy – Oyegun

John-Odigie-Oyegun

National Chairman of All Progressive Congress (APC), Chief John Oyegun, on Saturday said that the gale of defections by politicians was not good for Nigeria’s political development.

According to Oyegun, who spoke to newsmen in Benin shortly after casting his vote, those defecting to the winning party should rather form a formidable opposition to enrich the nation’s democracy.

“Many opposition party members have defected to APC just because they lost out, that is not good for political development.

“One would have advised that opposition members should stay where they are, and form a formidable opposition party,” Oyegun said.

He described the governorship and house of assembly elections as “the most decent, ordely and peaceful” ever conducted in Edo.
