Reports have it that, Benue, Kebbi, Zamfara, Delta, Ekiti and Ogun states governors or their loyalists defeated serving Senators and the House of Representatives members to clinch their parties’ tickets during last month’s primaries.
Many of the said National Assembly members have pinched tent with other parties, where they would battle governors or their aides, who won the parties’ primaries.
Those who are not in contention are believed to be prepared to work against the election of those who denied them of tickets.
