The National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Bolaji Abdullahi, has dumped the party.

Abdullahi is an ally of both Saraki and Ahmed and served under the duo as a commissioner before been nominated for the appointment of a minister under former president Goodluck Jonathan
He was nominated to the position of the spokesman of the party by Saraki.
Though Saraki did not mention the party to which he was defecting, Abdullahi, like Ahmed, said he was headed for the Peoples Democratic Party.
Saraki’s Special Adviser on International Relations, Bamikole Omisore, confirmed the decision of Abdullahi to dump the APC for the PDP.
Omisore, in a WhatsApp message on Tuesday evening, said: “APC Spokesman, Bolaji Abdullahi, resigns, joins Senate President, Bukola Saraki to PDP.”
