Prof. Itse Sagay, Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption ( PACAC) has described the breakaway faction of the ruling All Progressives Congress ( APC), Reformed APC as itinerant politicians who decided to leave the party because they couldn’t get what they want.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Daily Independent, Sagay said the rAPC members are not different from herdsmen, moving from one political party to another looking for what to ‘chop’.
Describing their exit as good riddance, Sagay who said the rAPC members are the real enemies of the party also said they have no right to the use of the acronym ‘APC’ as they are not registered by the Independent National Electoral Commission ( INEC) with the name
“The so-called Reformed APC is also the same as the New PDP. These are itinerant characters who are not better than the
cattle herders. They move from place to place in search of greener pastures. Once the grass is no longer lush again, they move to another place”.
“They think they are not enjoying enough ‘chop’ in APC, so they want to go and look for somewhere else to perch in order to ‘chop’. All they believe in is to live to eat, acquire assets without the interest of the country at heart. How to develop Nigeria and rid it of corruption doesn’t matter to them”.
“These are people who have not made any contributions to national life. So, I am not surprised that they have moved” he said.
