The All Progressives Congress, (APC) has stated that prominent politicians who defected to other parties will still be welcomed to the party whenever they show their interests.
In a statement by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, said it was ready to welcome members who wished to return to its fold.
The ruling party called on politicians such as former vice president Atiku Abubakar, Governor Aminu Tambuwal, former senate president Bukola Saraki and Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state who joined the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and other parties ahead of the 2019 election.
Daily Times gathered that the statement came after Senator Barnabas Gemade of the Social Democratic Party, (SDP) again decamped to the APC at the weekend and former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, had earlier returned to the ruling party.
“We assure all true progressives who left the party over whatever grievance to return and join ongoing efforts to reposition the APC and further achieve our pro-people plans for the country,” the party said.
