Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has revealed why some governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are defecting to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Reacting to the defection of Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State to the APC, the governor said that the opposition party has become very weak and the situation is getting worse.
During an appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday, Sule said the APC is in the process of getting stronger.
The governor noted that the depletion of the PDP by poaching its governors and lawmakers is a part of politicking.
Sule opined that the defection of PDP governors to APC is a signal suggesting that the opposition leaders are seeing what President Muhammadu Buhari is doing.
“We have been a very strong party and we are doing the best we can to continue to be stronger and the only way we can be stronger is to get more and more people and the right people to get are the leaders of the opposition. That’s what we are trying to do and God so kind we are doing that,” the governor stated.
When asked if the desire of the APC is to plunder the opposition such that come 2023 only the ruling party will be standing, Governor Sule said “PDP has always been weak since President Muhammadu Buhari came in,” adding that all that is being seen at the moment is that the party is becoming “weaker and weaker”.
He boasted that the APC is doing a very good job by ensuring that it opens its doors and give Nigerians what they are looking for when it comes to governance.
