Since the conclusion of the APC primary elections, several top politicians of the party have defected to other political parties.

On Sunday, Kashim Shettima, former governor of Borno, led some APC senators to meet Bola Tinubu, APC presidential candidate, to help address the internal crisis in the senate caucus of the party.

Similarly, last week, Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of the APC, expressed concern over defections that have hit the party in recent weeks, vowing to find a solution to the challenge.
