Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has hinted that the opposing governors in other parties aside the APC have expressed their interest to defect to All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ganduye made the disclosure as he received members of APC membership registration/revalidation appeals committee, led by Alhaji Faruk Aliyu on a courtesy visit at Governor’s Lodge, Asokoro, Abuja.
In his words: “As far as we are concerned nobody was marginalised in the exercise. For your information, 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.
“I want use this opportunity to congratulate you for getting us more entrants into our party. We thank you for the good exercise conducted. This makes our party to wax stronger and improve internal democracy,”
“If some people feel they are marginalised in the exercise, our doors are still opened. I understand that there is no single petition from Kano forwarded to your committee. So even if somebody comes with a petition please tell that person to come and get registered,”
Following the defection of Governor of the Cross River State, Ben Ayade, a lot of governors are eyeing the possibility of defecting to the ruling party.
Ayade cited his reason for defecting and said: “Having seen and known the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and his commitment to this country, his nationalistic disposition and all the efforts he has made to bring Nigeria to where we are today, it is obvious that at this point, we needed to join hands with him to build a Nigeria that we can be proud of.
“We need all governors to recognize that it is not the party that matters. It is the character, it is an honor, it is the commitment to the vision of this great nation. We all need to know as teamwork ahead of the president by working towards building a prosperous country that the succession worries of 2023 will come without the fears and the worries the international community has for us.
