READ What Gani Adams Said About APC Loyalists Turning Against Buhari

Otunba Gani Adams, the national coordinator of Oodu’a People’s Congress (OPC), said All Progressives Congress (APC) loyalists praising President Muhammadu Buhari would soon turn against him.

Speaking on Tuesday, November 3 in an interview with newsmen in Lagos, Adams said once the personal and selfish interests of the APC politicians were not being taken care, they would turn their backs on the president, Nigerian Tribune reports.

He said: “So when you are talking of politicians praising Buhari, they would praise him. After Buhari would have served two and a half years, you will now see different colours in them, maybe because the government is unable to meet their expectations.

“You will now see them decamping and praising PDP or another party. You can’t judge now, just wait for two and a half years after Buhari must have been in power, you will now see the real colour of those who are talking.”

According to him, politicians could not be trusted by the word of their mouth.

Adams recalled that the same thing happened during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“Is it not those people in PDP who even committed a lot of atrocities against PDP and were abusing PDP when they got to APC?” he queried.

“The lesson is that when you are digging a hole for your enemies, don’t dig it too deep because you don’t know, maybe you will fall into that hole at the end of the day, be very, very careful,” Adams warned.

The OPC coordinator pointed out that about six to seven powerful governors left PDP for APC, while some others who did not defect were working for APC.

He added that the APC had disappointed the PDP defectors as most of their personal ambition and interest had been jeopardized while some others were facing corruption charges.

Recall that Gani had stated that his support for Jonathan in the last general elections, was his own way of exercising his franchise as a Nigerian. He said despite his support for the former president during the polls, the OPC did not take sides with any party.
