Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has said more governors have expressed willingness to defect to the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He made this disclosure when he hosted members of APC Membership Registration/Revalidation Appeals Committee, led by Alhaji Faruk Aliyu, during a visit at the Governor’s Lodge in Asokoro, Abuja.
In a statement made in Kano on Sunday by his Chief Press Secretary, Abba Anwar, quoted Ganduje as saying APC was making arrangements to receive the governors who would join the party for a greater Nigeria.
Ganduje who hailed the membership registration/ revalidation committee for doing a good job also said, “as far as we are concerned, nobody was marginalised in the exercise.”
He said “there are indications that more governors are coming to our great party, the APC, from other places. Our internal democracy is waxing stronger day by day.”
On Thursday, May 20, the Governor of Cross River State, Prof. Ben Ayade, defected from the People’s Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.
He announced the decision after a closed-door meeting with six APC governors that lasted over an hour at the executive chamber of the Governor’s Office in Calabar.
Also, there was a speculation that Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle will defect to the APC on June 12 after he had dissolved the State Executive Council last week. However, he had said there was no plan to defect.
