Nigeria Governors Forum is An Assembly of Evil ‘Betrayers’ and ‘Judases’ – Godswill Akpabio
Governor of Akwa-Ibom state and Chairman of the newly formed PDP Governors’ Forum, Chief Godswill Akpabio has lashed out on the collective sensibility of the Nigerian Governors Forum which he is also a member, describing them as an assembly of evil betrayers and judases.
Akpabio who paid a courtesy call on the Peoples’ Democratic Party, (PDP) National Working Committee (NWC), led by Bamanga Tukur in Abuja two days after he was unanimously elected the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum believed to have been arranged by the presidency to break the ranks of the NGF led by Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi today accused the Nigeria Governors Forum of turning into an opposition party against the president.
In his words: “PDP is the only party with national spread and Nigerians have come to accept it. But when there is an implosion, when you have more Judases than disciples. The Judases are more than disciples now. We have to cleanse the system of Judases to support Mr. President. Where there is treachery, where there are more Judases than you have disciples, we want to have good disciples, we know that even in Christendom when Jesus Christ have 12 disciples there was one Judas, but if the Judas were up to nine then Jesus could have been in trouble, the gospel would have been in trouble today.
“What the PDP is trying to do now is to cleanse its house, to try to identify the ones they called Judas and whisper it to them and said go out, the train is moving and you cannot stand otherwise we will crush you. That’s the new PDP; it isn’t to challenge the Nigeria Governors Forum, but to strengthen it.
We will not allow minorities to impose their ideas on us the majority. We will not allow NGF to be seen as a trade union to fight government. We cannot be fighting the federal government; we are part of the federal government. Our job is to work with the federal government to initiate best policies for the interest of Nigerians.”
“I thank Mr. President and Alhaji Bamanga Tukur for finding me worthy to lead the PDP Governors’ Forum. There was no PDP Forum fourteen years ago, because there was no need then. But today, we are facing challenges and it is a function of PDP fighting itself. That Forum isn’t about NWC, the Forum is subordinate to the party, it will work in conjunction with the party. Once you give a directive, the millions of PDP supporters will get the message. We aren’t going to toy with the mandate given us. We will work with the party and Mr. President to propagate the ideals of PDP”, Akpabio added.
Tukur in his response assured Akpabio that he has the backing of the party in his new assignment to break the NGF. ”PDP is ready more than ever before to face the challenges, because PDP as a party is in every polling booth in Nigeria. No party fields candidate in every polling booth in Nigeria, only PDP.With your support and understanding, I can tell Mr. President, if you have been sleeping for three hours,you can now sleep well! You can even take a siesta.”
