2 Politicians Whose Defections Resulted In Big Regrets

Defection from one political party to another political party is quietly becoming political norm in Nigeria. However, defections of some politicians from a political party to another, often, result in political confusions which end up with regrets.

Politicians, mostly, defect from a political party to another political party with the aim of seeking greener pasture. Politicians do defect from a political party where their political future is narrow and full of uncertainty, to another political party where they may hope to easily actualise their political ambitions.
