Lai Mohammed, the minister of information, has described the defection of some national assembly members from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as “the removal of stones from (the party’s) rice”.

Mohammed spoke in his country home of Oro, Kwara state, on Sunday when members and supporters of the party welcomed him at the playground of Muslim Community Primary School, Oro.

The minister told the party’s supporters that the defection of the lawmakers in the national assembly had exposed the “faces of traitors” in the party’s fold.

“Today is a special day. God has answered our prayers by exposing our political traitors,” he said.

“God has removed stones from our rice and sands in our garri.”

He said the defection would have no significant negative effect on the party; instead, he said, it would offer an opportunity for its re-positioning.

“We are here today to assure that it is a new dispensation in Kwara APC politics. We are at home today to assure you that the party will be re-organised and re-positioned,” he said.

“By exposing the enemies and traitors in our fold, God has given us the opportunities that we have been looking for to re-position our party.

“These are people who had never given us peace and progress. Today, by the grace of God and with your support, APC will wax stronger in Kwara. What is in the offing is a mega party.”

Mohammed said they were prepared to take the party structure back and give it back to the people.

“The party belongs to you all. We therefore reassure you that God is with us and the people of Kwara are with us,” he said.

“Since the day they decamped, you can see those who have come to our camp are more than those who left.”

The minister appealed to the members and party supporters to give new entrants a chance.
