The Sokoto state governor further stated that “it is obvious that this is a diversified tactic to sustain the low morale of APC members who are ruining the loss of yet another state governor, Godwin Obaseki from the State of Edo to the PDP, as a result of the chaos and anarchy currently existing in the APC, after the mismanagement of its business, as recognized even by Mr. President Muhammadu Buhari ”.
According to Tambuwal, “PDP governors are very focused on offering good governance and the benefits of democracy to their respective states and working tirelessly to strengthen and reposition the party.
“There is no attraction for any PDP member not to mention a PDP governor to join the APC, a party plagued by crises, without even an elected leadership, as provided for in Section 223 of the 1999 Constitution, which specifically requires the Committee Executive of all members. political party in Nigeria is elected democratically ”.
The chairman of the PDP Governors' Forum advised Governor Bello to focus on providing good governance to the people of the Kogi State rather than getting involved in lies.
