Senator Gbemisola Saraki who has been consistently speculated to have plans to defect from the PDP to the APC may have finally declared for APC and directed all her supporters to vote for Muhammadu Buhari in the presidential election on Saturday.
Gbemi Saraki who is the first daughter of 2nd Republic Senate Leader, Olusola Saraki, has been uncomfortable with PDP in recent times. Her brother, Bukola Saraki, is the leader of APC in Kwara. It was gathered that she has addressed her supporters and asked them to vote for APC’s Buhari. One of her ardent followers who was at the briefing confirmed to Daily Trust that Senator Gbemi Saraki was quoted as asking them “to go out tomorrow (Saturday) with your broom and sweep your communities clean,”
apparently directing them to vote for APC presidential candidate, Mohammadu Buhari. Since the conclusion of the PDP primaries which produced Senator Simeon Ajibola as the party’s flag bearer, there have been speculations that Gbemi had severed her membership of PDP following grumbling of marginalisation emanating from her supporters.
