In an interview with our correspondent, Hon. Randolph Oruene Brown bared his mind about the recent defectors and its effect on 2019.
Q: Sir, what do you have to say about the defection of 15 Senators and 37 members to PDP?. Is it likely going to affect the outcome of 2019 elections?.
Hon. Randolph: Definitely, history is repeating itself. The defecting legislators have followers, family members and their people will vote for them.
so the other party should not be deceived into believing defectors will vote Buhari in 2019, history will rather repeat itself.
Q: The Special Assistant to the President on Legislative matters Senate, said the defectors will vote Buhari in 2018, that they only defected due to internal misunderstanding in various states.
Hon. Randolph: Hmmmmm. Laughs. Taste of the bud is in the eating. There is no general resentment in the land! Is Ita Enang aware of the mood of the populace? the interest of the people. let the people decide, but i can assure you history will repeat itself in 2019.
Q: Do you think with what is on ground, it is ripe for national assembly to go on recess.
Hon. Randolph: You know the workings. What was suspended is plenary. We still make referrals, like in committee on banking and finance we still met this afternoon and we will continue to meet until all proposal referred have been treated.
Q: Dont you think there will soon be clash between the defectors and those in the PDP as a party?
Hon. Randolph: oh oh, laughs. The umbrella is big enough for us, there is always room for more people. What we are concerned about is how to deliver dividends of democracy to our people, we can always negotiate within our self.
Q: What can you say about Ekiti election?
Hon. Randolph: Ekiti election falls short of the people’s expectation, shameful and a secondary disgrace of democracy. Agencies were used to truncate the peoples choice. History will not be kind to them.

Hon. Randolph: Please go and get your P.V.C. and vote the evil ones out of power in 2019. Thank you Nigeria Assembly News. thanks.
