    Decamping from PDP to APC is definitely not on political ideologies rather dropping the umbrella and picking up the broom.

    Decamping should not be making news headline. People are decamping for food. It’s sad that should be the position in Nigeria at stage in our democracy. You subtly hear decamping in the UK or USA politics. But in Nigeria people has been starved that compelled to make hard political decision to decamp.
