Defections: Stop Poaching Our Governors, PDP Tells APC


The Peoples Democratic Party Governors Forum has announced the donation of N100m to the victims of the Tutuwada Market fire incident in Zamfara State while warning the All Progressive Congress to desist from poaching its governors.

The Governor of Sokoto State and Chairman of the forum, Aminu Tambuwal, stated this on Wednesday when he led other PDP governors to the Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle.

Tambuwal, during a statement by the Special Assistant on Media to the Governor of Rivers State, Kelvin Ebiri, noted that the APC had opted to play petty politics with the victim’s misfortune rather than genuinely commiserating with the people of the state who are grappling with insecurity and therefore the latest fire incident.

He said, “How many lives are lost from when APC was responsible for this government House till now? what percentage of them came here to commiserate with the people of Zamfara State?

“This is our home. We the governors of PDP aren’t visitors. We are fully home and no visitor can replace or supplant the homeowner. we’ve clicked, not as visitors but as owners of this home to commiserate with our people that are suffering from this inferno. I pity any leader who seeks to require advantage of a misfortune to play politics.”

He further urged the APC to desist from playing politics and save Nigerians from the prevailing high level of insecurity and poverty.

The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, also urged the APC to consider solving the challenges confronting Nigeria and stop poaching PDP governors.

He said, “All folks know today the extent of insecurity in Nigeria. rather than APC concentrating and fight insecurity, what the party is doing is moving from one state to the opposite to poach people. Now, you’ll imagine the insult, a celebration in federal that declared Zamfara a no-flight zone, an equivalent party is coming to woo you to hitch them. I can’t know it .”
