1 Mins read

The Governors’ Forum of the People’s Democratic Party under the leadership of Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has described as the claim by the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, that 10 of its members were planning to join the All Progressives Congress as ”baseless”.

Bello had said on Friday that about 10 PDP governors were set to join the ruling APC.

In response, the PDP governors on Saturday debunked the claim in a statement signed by its Director-General, C.I.D. Maduabum.

He said, “This statement 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 mourning 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 bedeviled 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. “

The PDP governors advised Bello, to concentrate on providing good governance to the people of Kogi.
