Governor Nyako, Others to Dump PDP for APC
Reports reaching Abusidiqu.com from Yola, Adamawa State indicates that the State Governor, Murtala Nyako and other governors from the north have been asked by their supporters to dump the ruling Peoples Democratic Party and join the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC.
According to the moves, the governors and their supporters will join the opposition All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, ahead of the registration of the All Progressive Congress, APC.
This discovery was made when supporters of governors from the north held a PDP stakeholders forum in Yola, yesterday.
Those who attended the meeting included state commissioners, local government chairmen, PDP ward chairmen and secretaries, special advisers and assistants as well as other principal officers of government in the PDP controlled states.
Sources said, Governor Nyako and Senator Ahmed Barata are among those expected to dump the party, as part of the decision reached in the meeting.
Attendees at the meeting were also reportedly briefed by some of their leaders on the plan by other governors of PDP controlled states, especially in the north to move out en-mass for the new opposition party.
According to sources, the reason for their leaving the party was to ensure that President Goodluck Jonathan would not win the 2015 general election.
However, in order to avoid being branded as committing anti-party activities by the PDP national leadership, governors on the party’s platform would remain in the party until 2015, before decamping to the APC.
Frustrated northern PDP members are said to be calculating that, altogether, all members of the party in 21crisis ridden chapters of the party would decamp to the APC, to form a formidable opposition against President Jonathan’s emergence in 2015.
At the Yola meeting, the PDP faction was said to have apart from directing their members to register with the APC also requested for additional 30,000 ANPP membership cards for them, even as they would eventually join the APC.
The registration in the ANPP before the 2015 election was to ensure that the new members were not denied their rights in the new APC, in case of those nursing various political ambition.
