The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has stated that many governors, senators and political heavyweights on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) would dump the party after its congress and national covention.
According to the opposition party, huge crisis would hit the ruling party after its convention.
The PDP further stated that recent PDP governors who dumped the party for APC because of their ambition would fail and consequently return before the 2023 general poll.
Diran Odeyemi, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, who spoke to Daily Trust, said; “That some governors are leaving does not mean that the party is going to die. The party will survive. Some peoole have left before. The people that left still came back but the party remains.
“So irrespective of anything that happened, the party will remain and it is not going to affect our chances in the 2023 elections because in politics, 24 hours is a long time.
“And who told you that by the time the APC finishes its congresses and national convention, some governors will not be aggrieved there too, and defect to the PDP?
“Governor Umahi left because he thought the APC will zone presidential ticket to the South-East. Whenever that fails, there is possibility of him coming back to the PDP.
“The other governor said he left because he wanted to assist President Muhammadu Buhari to fight insecurity. But the moment he realise that the voters and masses in his state do not like the APC, he is likely return to PDP,” he said.
