Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, chairman of the People's Democratic Party Governors' Forum, has described Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello's claim that 10 PDP Governors are on their way to the All Progressive Congress (APC) as false, adding that no PDP Governor plans to defect the APC.

While appearing on a TV program Friday night, Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello said about 10 PDP Governors were expected to join the ruling APC.

In a statement signed by the Director-General of the PDP Governors Forum, C. I. D Maduabum, Governor Tambuwal said Bello’s statement
does not merit any response but for the fact that it may demoralise PDP members and Nigerians who are not aware of the facts”.

The Sokoto state governor further stated that

“It is obvious that this is a diversionary tactic to shore up the sagging morale of APC members who are ruing the loss of yet another state Governor, Godwin Obaseki of Edo State to the PDP, as a result of the chaos and anarchy currently existing in the APC, following the mismanagement of their affairs as acknowledged even by Mr President, Muhammadu Buhari”.

According to Tambuwal,
“The PDP Governors are very focused on delivering good governance and the benefits of democracy to their respective states and working tirelessly to strengthen and reposition the party.

“There is no attraction whatsoever for any PDP member not to talk of a PDP Governor to join the APC, a party bedeviled by crises, without even an elected leadership as envisaged by Section 223 of the 1999 Constitution that specifically requires the Executive Committee of every political party in Nigeria to be democratically elected”.

Governor Bello was advised by the chairman of the PDP Governors Forum to focus on providing good governance to the citizens of Kogi State rather than engaging in lies.
