10 PDP governors will defect to APC soon - Yahaya Bello
Yahaya Bello, Kogi state governor has debunked claims that there is crisis in the All Progressives Congress.
He said that about 10 governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party will soon defect to the APC.
According to him, the dissolution of the National Working Committee and other decisions reached at the National Executive Council meeting of the party on Thursday has made the APC stronger.
Yahaya Bello also debunked claims that the APC will fall apart when the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), leaves office, saying those with such notion “are making a great mistake”.
He also denied that governors caused the ongoing crisis in the party, noting Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, would be made to return to APC.
It’s unfortunate that our colleague, my brother, and my in-law, Obaseki has left us, but as a party and a party-loyal man, we have to reclaim him.
I can tell you that there are up to 10 PDP governors ready to join APC and that would happen very soon.”
He clarified that the former National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, and other NWC members were removed to bring peace into the party.
He added that the decision was not targetted at undermining the influence of the APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu.
Yahaya Bello said,
Oshiomhole did not offend anyone and nobody offended Oshiomhole.
Tinubu has paid his dues; and nobody is undermining him.
He continues to play a fatherly role. We need him and he needs us.”
