Abuja - The Conference of Nigeria Peoples Party, (CNPP) has warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) against accepting defecting People’s  Democratic Party(PDP) members in the new year, according to Premium Times

The CNPP insist that more  PDP defections to the APC fold could lead to a one-party system in the country.

This was made known by the spokesperson of the group, Osita Okechukwu.

Governors Musa Kwankwaso of Kano State and Chibuike Amaechi had hinted that more PDP members and governors would soon leave the party.  On November 26, Amechi and Kwankwaso along with Aliyu Wamakko (Sokoto), Murtala Nyako (Adamawa) and Abdulfatah Ahmed (Kwara) left the PDP for APC.

APC became the majority in the lower legislative chamber after 37 members of the House of Representatives left the PDP.
