Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State

The Aminu Tambuwal led Peoples Democratic Party Governorship Forum has dismissed claims that 10 of their colleagues will soon decamp to to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State made the claim while appearing on a television programme on Friday evening

But while reacting to the claim, the PDP described the claim as false, noting that there is nothing attractive in APC at the moment to attract any member of the party.

PDP governors spoke in a statement  signed by their Director-General, C.I.D. Maduabum on Saturday.

The statement reads: “This 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 mourning 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, GCFR.

“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. “

PDP governors also advised Bello to focus on delivery of good governance to the people of Kogi State.
