12 PDP Govs In Defection Talks With APC…As Opposition Govs Vow to End PDP’s Bad Governance
No fewer than 12 governors elected on the platform of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who reports say are already in talks with the newly formed All Progressives Congress, APC, may dump the PDP ahead of the 2015 general elections, especially if the crisis currently rocking the PDP persists.
This hint was publicly confirmed today by the Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha while speaking at an APC South East rally held at the Heroes square in the state capital, Owerri today.
Okorocha said in a matter of time the number of state governors in the new party will increase by 12 bringing their total strength to 23 so as to collectively bring an end to PDP misrule in the country.
To buttress this point, iReports-ng confirmed that one of the PDP governors from North Central Nigeria who is concerned about the crisis in the party and the devastating effect the rumoured ambition of President Jonathan will have on the party last weekend said ” I can count at least 10 of us(governors) that are no longer comfortable with the PDP and can leave the party any moment without further notice.”
The rally was attended by eight out of 11 APC governors who all took turns to address the crowd with one verdict that APC has come as the ultimate remedy for the headache the PDP has inflicted on the Nigerian people in the past 14 years it has been ruling the country.
Babatunde Fashola in his address described APC as “great train of change”, adding that “We have set about a course that is irrevocably committed to giving power back to the people. We believe that Nigeria needs a change and APC will bring about that change.”
Thereafter, Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi; Borno State Governor Ibrahim Shetima; Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State; Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa State Governor Fayemi Kayode of Ekiti State; Governor Rauf Aregbesola of the State of Osun; and Comrade Adams Oshiomole of Edo State all assured Nigerians that APC has come with the wind of change and sought the support of the masses.
