APC releases names of 3 more PDP Govs about joining ruling party


Report has emerged that three more governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, are in line to decamp to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Recall that Zamfara State Governor, Bello Mattawale who was elected on the platform of the PDP, has made public his plan to pitch tent with ruling party from Tuesday (today) following in the step of Ebonyi State governor, Dave Umahi who moved to APC last year’s November.

Three governors of PDP:  Abia governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, his Enugu State counterpart, Ifeanyi Ugwanyi and Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri would also join ship with that of the former on the horizon, as per Punchng quoting an unnamed APC chieftain.

  “The Zamfara State, Bello Mattawalle, is already in the kitty. We expect at least 18 of our governors to attend his home coming to Gusau tomorrow (Tuesday).

“After him, we are expecting Governor Ikpeazu to follow. Talks have reached an advanced stage. You know will be concluding his second term by 2023 and of course, he would want to remain politically relevant. Details of conditions are still being worked out by both parties.

“The other governors have sent emissaries and talks are progressing,” the paper quoted the source as saying.
