Defections: ‘God will continue to fish out bad eggs among us’ – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday likened defectors from his party, APC, to ‘bad eggs’ saying “God will continue to fish out the bad eggs among us.”

Mr Buhari, speaking in Bauchi, also told supporters not to be perturbed by the recent defections in the party.

Over two scores of federal and state lawmakers as well as three state governors have defected from the APC in the past two weeks. The states where the defections occurred include Benue, Kwara, Kano, and Sokoto.

On Thursday, Mr Buhari, who is set to travel to London for a 10-day vacation, spoke at the commencement of the campaign rally for the Bauchi South Senatorial District bye-elections and the formal presentation of APC candidate for the August 11 poll, Gumau Yahaya.

According to a press statement by his office, President Buhari told the rally that the APC-led government had remained faithful in implementing its campaign promise of improving the economy, securing the country, and the fight against corruption.

“The work we are doing is because of God, our country and you. I want to inform you that the knowledge we have garnered over the years, we won’t allow you to be cheated.

‘‘Like we promised, what will determine a good future for the country are security, strong economy and to stop corruption.

“We campaigned on these things, you voted for us and we will never forget,” the president said to a thunderous applause by party supporters at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium, Bauchi.
