I Am Not Bothered About The Defections – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari says he is not bothered about the defections in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). The President said this on Sunday during an interactive session with the Nigerian community in Togo at the Nigerian Embassy, Lome. “I am not bothered about the defections,” he said, adding that, “Ordinary Nigerians have developed confidence in us and are defending us.
