Tambuwa blasts Bello over alleged defection of PDP Governors.
The Governor of Sokoto State Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has blasted Governor Yahaya Bello of kogi state over his alleged defection of some PDP governors to APC as the greatest lies from the pit of hell.
Governor Bello had on a Television Programme insinuated that no fewer than ten PDP governors would soon decamp to the All Progressive Party (APC.)
Tambuwal, who is also chairman of the PDP governor’s forum described the claim made by kogi state as misleading , false, and diversionary with intent to shore up dwindling morale APC members.
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
“It is obvious that this is a diversionary tactic to shore up the sagging morale of APC members who are ruining 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.
“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.” he said.
