The PDP Governors’ Forum has debunked as unfounded, the allegation by the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello while featuring in an interview on national Television’s ‘on Friday night, that about 10 governors under the Peoples Democratic Party PDP
are set to join the ruling All Progressives Congress APC.
This is contained in a statement issued by the Director-General, PDP Governors’ Forum. C.I.D. Maduabum who 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 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.
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.
The statement added that 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.
The Forum also advise His Excellency, Governor Yahaya Bello, to concentrate on providing good governance to the people of Kogi State.
