It has been revealed that the G-7 governors have reached a decision to leave the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and join the opposition party All Progressives Congress (APC).
Reports from Leadership Newspapers says that the decision to move to APC comes barely 24 hours after President Goodluck Jonathan chose to postpone a planned meeting with the G-7 governors which was seen as a make or break meeting.
It was also gathered that the decision was made by the governors in a meeting which held at the Kano State governors’ lodge in Abuja and ended at about 12.30 am.
But LEADERSHIP gathered that one of the seven governors, Sule Lamido of Jigawa State may be having great difficulty in making up his mind while the remaining six governors have decided to take a leap of faith and join the APC.
The six governors that have made up their mind to join the APC are Rabiu Kwankwaso (Kano), Aliyu Wamakko (Sokoto), Muazu Aliyu (Niger), Murtala Nyako (Adamawa), Abdulfatah Ahmed (Kwara) and Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers).
The development may also have a far reaching effect on members of the ruling PDP in the National Assembly and state assemblies with a large number of the lawmakers expected to pitch tent with their governors.
