Rebel governors may soon dump PDP for APC

The ongoing efforts to reconcile aggrieved Peoples Democratic Party members with the Bamanga Tukur-led National Working Committee of the party,appear to have finally hit a brick wall. A hint of this emerged when Adamawa State Governor, Murtala Nyako, told a visiting All Progressives Congress delegation on Wednesday, that himself and the six other aggrieved PDP governors, might dump the PDP for the “warm embrace of the APC.”

It was learnt on Wednesday that the National Vice-Chairman North-East of the APC, Umar Duhu, who led the delegation to the government residence in Yola, offered Nyako a piece of kola nut and an invitation in accordance with the northern tradition. The Director of Press to the Governor, Ahmad Sajo, who confirmed the development to our correspondent, said Nyako expressed his desire and those of his colleagues to join the opposition APC as “soon as the situation in the PDP becomes unbearable.” Sajo said, “The governor told them he is committed to supporting them; he admires all the APC governors for the way they are focused in their performance. “He abhors the injustice and impunity that are going on in the PDP and he also frowns on the fact that someone would emerge as the party’s candidate at the local level and the PDP will change the name of the person in Abuja and submit a different person’s name.”
