The Peoples Democratic Party has dismissed the claim that its governors were part of President Muhammadu Buhari's re-election project.

Recall that Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, had on Tuesday said that most governors in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) wanted President Muhammadu Buhari to re-contest.

But the PDP spokesperson, Dayo Adeyeye while reacting to the governor's claim, said Okorocha was known for making false claims and urged Nigerians to disregard him.

Adeyeye said the PDP governors were currently working with the party’s leadership to ensure that its national convention slated for December 9 is successful.

“Our governors are not part of the Buhari reelection plan. Rochas Okorocha has a penchant for telling lies. Nobody should take him serious.

"Our governors cannot be working for Buhari’s reelection. How can they be working for Buhari. On what ground should they be working for Buhari’s re-election?” Adeyeye queried.

When asked to comment on the statement by the Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, asking President Buhari to seek reelection in 2019, he said, “I don’t want to talk about Dave Umahi, but what I am telling you is that our governors are not working for Buhari’s re-election.”
