Asaba — FORMER Foreign Affairs Minister and National Vice-Chairman South-South of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Tom Ikimi, said, yesterday, in Asaba that APC was already creating waves as no fewer than 11 governors from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, family have found it as a veritable platform to decamp to. Consequently, he sounded a note of warning against any sanction the leadership of PDP might take against those governors.
He spoke at the inauguration of state officers that will oversee the affairs of the party in Delta State. His words: “Democracy in Nigeria is now assured because of the APC, some governors in PDP can now breathe fresh air. Five governors are moving around now and I am challenging them (PDP), they can do nothing to them (decampee governors) because they have alternative. They are coming to us. Don’t say I told you, it is a secret, it is a secret (laughter).
“Don’t worry, we have today 11 progressive governors, that 11 would soon be 15; it will be soon be 17, it will soon be 19, it will soon be 21 and then we shall be majority.”- http://www.vanguardngr.com/2013/08/2015-weve-11-pdp-govs-romancing-with-apc-says-tom-ikimi/
