2019: APC Governors On Their Way To PDP – Secondus
Barring any change, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) may be hit by mass defection over the next few months.
The opposition Peoples Democratic Party is in talks with some governors of the APC.
The PDP is targeting the APC governors from the North-Central geopolitical zone.
The National Chairman of PDP, Uche Secondus, who disclosed the party’s plan to woo the APC governors, said no PDP governor has any intention of jumping ship.
Secondus was addressing party members in Umuahia, the Abia State capital on Monday.
“I have talked with APC governors in the North Central and they are on their way to PDP,” he said, adding: “All PDP governors are intact and in agreement with the party.
"No rumours again. Nigerians are in the mission of recovering the country. Even market women know that APC has collapsed.”
Five out of the six states of the North Central – Benue, Plateau, Kogi, Nasarawa and Kwara – were formerly under the control of the PDP until the 2015 elections, when it lost them to the APC.
Nasarawa was the only state under the Congress for Progressives Change (CPC).
Decrying the state of insecurity across the country, Secondus urged Nigerians to hold the APC responsible for the killing of innocent Nigerians by herdsmen.
“We must blame the APC-led Federal Government for its inability to protect lives and property. All have collapsed, there is no fuel, while herdsmen have been given license to kill,” he said.
The PDP National chairman gave an assurance that the PDP is on a rescue mission and will liberate Nigerians from APC’s misrule in the 2019 general elections.
“The PDP is on a rescue mission; APC is divided, they have no mission, they have no vision. They are playing games with hunger, but enough is enough,” Secondus said.
He expressed confidence in the government of Okezie Ikpeazu, saying PDP’s elected office holders are working with the fear of God and the support of the people.
