It is a question of who stole more from the other. That is between Nigeria’s ruling party the All Progressives Congress, (APC) and the erstwhile ruling party, the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP). Well, the list is complete now. Below are the names each poached from the other. These are social media stuff and the authorship is difficult to locate but the list of poached men from the APC from the PDP should carry the name of Citizen Agba Jalingo. The author of the list poached by the PDP is not clear.
The question now is who has poached more and what does the trend portend for Nigeria?
The PDP line up of Ex-APC Chieftains
Iyorchia Ayu — National Chairman, (APC decampee but this is least unlikely since Ayu was among the nine original founders of the PDP and is not known to have ever decamped)

Umar Damagum — Deputy National Chairman North, (APC decampee).
Samuel Anyanwu — National Secretary, (APC decampee).
