The senator boasted that most of NASS that defected to the opposition party were currently regretting their actions and declared APC readiness to received them back to its fold.
“In fact, we are ever ready to still receive defectors back to APC on realizing their mistakes because they are in fear of losing 2019 election even after enjoying automatic tickets in the opposition,” Lawan stressed.

He further cautioned Atiku to bury his presidential ambition.
