2023: Aggrieved National Assembly Members Plan Showdown With Govs Over Lost Tickets

State governors and their appointees will compete against National Assembly members who were unable to secure places on their parties' ballots for the 2023 elections.

During last month's primaries, governors or their supporters defeated incumbent senators and members of the house of representatives in states such as Benue, Kebbi, Zamfara, Delta, Ekiti, and Ogun, according to reports.

Many members of the National Assembly have defected to other parties in order to compete against the governors or their appointees who won the parties' primaries.

Those who chose not to run are expected to try to prevent those who were denied tickets from being elected.

Senator Abdullahi Adamu, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, met with APC senators on Wednesday as part of efforts to halt the planned defection of members of the red chamber.

Thirteen senators have already defected from the APC to the Peoples Democratic Party and other parties.
