Apparently rattled by the meeting between the leaders of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and the G-7 governors in Sokoto on Tuesday, and the ones held yesterday in Kano, Yola and Dutse, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the APC of poaching the governors.
The G-7 are PDP governors in the Abubabar Baraje faction of the ruling party. The seven governors are Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers); Musa Kwankwaso (Kano); Murtala Nyako (Adamawa); Aliyu Wamakko (Sokoto); Babangida Aliyu (Niger); Sule Lamido (Jigawa); and Abdulfatah Ahmed (Kwara).
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, the PDP said the APC “desperately coaxed” the governors and celebrating “mere discussions” with them.
What is more, the APC is called a “hypocritical party lacking in genuine ideology and principles”, which lacks true partnership and electable materials at all levels.
According to the PDP the attempt to poach the governors will fail.
