More PDP Governors, Lawmakers to Join ‘New’ PDP Faction
Adamawa State Governor Murtala Nyako yesterday said more governors under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors and lawmakers will join the Kawu Baraje faction of the party.
“I know that many governors will soon be joining us while the entire caucus of the PDP at the National Assembly is with us in principle, but others will soon make it public,” the governor said in an interview in Yola.
Apart from Nyako, six other governors – Aliyu Wamakko (Sokoto), Sule Lamido (Kano), Rabiu Kwankwaso (Kano) Babangida Aliyu (Niger) and Abdul Fatah Ahmed (Kwara) – broke off along with former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to form the Baraje faction last month.
Nyako urged elders to openly identify “with the cause of progressive democrats” in the PDP under Baraje’s leadership so that together we shall fight for the enthronement of lasting democracy in the PDP.
He said: “I want all Nigerians especially our elders to come out openly and identify with people of like minds who believe in true democracy and people-centred political party under Baraje.
Nyako praised the governors who formed the new PDP, for their courage and statesmanship.
He also hailed Atiku for his courage.
