Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has stated that more governors under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are knocking on the doors of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Mr. Bello alleges that the Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, will not be the only governor of the PDP who would be defecting to the APC.
“Umahi is with us, others are coming. Other governors are already knocking. They’re on their way. We’ll be unveiling them one after the other,” he stated while speaking on Channels TV programme, Politics Today.
Governor Bello further noted that the APC is committed to presenting a presidential candidate who would unite the nation in 2023.
He noted that Governor Umahi should be recognized as the politician of the year as he had sacrificed to enlist the southeast to get good representation at the centre.
According to the Kogi State governor, the North Central and the South-East region had been deprived in national polity, adding that there was nothing wrong if the two regions contests the 2023 presidency.
