Nothing Attractive In APC – PDP Govs



The PDP Governors Forum has said there is nothing attractive in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to make them join the party.

The forum under the leadership of Sokoto State Governor, Rt. Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, stated this while debunking an allegation by the Kogi State  Governor, Yahaya Bello that about 10 PDP governors are planning to join APC.

The Kogi governor stated this while featuring in an interview on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ on Friday night.

Reacting however, director general of PDP Governors’ Forum, Hon. C.I.D. Maduabum, said the statement by Governor Bello does not merit any response but for the fact that it may demoralise PDP members and Nigerians who are not aware of the facts

“It is obvious that this is a diversionary tactic to shore up the sagging morale of APC members who are ruing the loss of yet another state Governor, Godwin Obaseki of Edo State to the PDP, as a result of the chaos and anarchy currently existing in the APC, following the mismanagement of their affairs as acknowledged even by Mr President, Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR.

“The PDP Governors are very focused on delivering good governance and the benefits of democracy to their respective states and working tirelessly to strengthen and reposition the party.

“There is no attraction whatsoever for any PDP member not to talk of a PDP Governor to join the APC, a party bedevilled by crises, without even an elected leadership as envisaged by Section 223 of the 1999 Constitution that specifically requires the

Executive Committee of every political party in Nigeria to be democratically elected.

“We advise His Excellency, Governor Yahaya Bello, to concentrate on providing good governance to the people of Kogi State,” the statement said.
