8 PDP Governors Set To Dump the Ruling Party… See Who They Are
Indication has emerged that at least eight PDP governors are set to leave the party and move to a viable opposition party all geared towards the 2015 elections. The move, which is not longer a question of “if” but “when” as revealed by a senior political actor familiar with the development will leave the PDP with only 15 states, while the ranks of the opposition will swell to 21 states.
Eight of influential governors touted to be preparing to leave the PDP are Rivers (Rotimi Amaechi), Adamawa (Murtala Nyako), Kano (Rabiu Kwankwaso), Jigawa (Sule Lamido) and Kebbi (Seidu Dakingari). Others are Governors Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu of Niger State, Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto and Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara.
To underscore the frustrations of the group with PDP, three of the Governors: Lamido, Kwankwaso and Wamakko boycotted the PDP peace parley in Kaduna on Saturday, which had Vice-President Namadi Sambo in attendance.
According to Thisday, the eight governors are firmly resolved to work together politically, claiming that they have been “thoroughly marginalised in PDP” and have lost confidence in the party leadership, which they say has been totally “commandeered” by President Goodluck Jonathan and the Aso Rock agents.
The governors, according to sources, have come to the conclusion that their political fortunes can only dwindle in PDP and as such are weighing their strategic options and next political moves having reached some political “agreement-in-principle” with the Bola Tinubu and Muhammadu Buhari – led opposition merger group, All Progressives Congress (APC).
It was also gathered from a credible source that the governors are already working out strategy to move with all the Senators, House of Representatives, State Assembly members and local council chairmen in their states into the APC to defeat the PDP in 2015.
