Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello said that he is very optimistic that more Governors from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would dump the opposition party and join the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Governor expressed this optimism during an inteeinte with Channels Television’s journalist Seun Okinbaloye.
Speaking on the defection of Governor Umahi of Ebonyi State, Bello said more governors from the PDP would soon join APC.
“I think probably, I can just give you an expo,” he told Channels Television’s political correspondent Seun Okinbaloye who asked him a series of questions on the latest development when he appeared as a guest on Politics Today on Thursday.
The governor said, “The expo I am going to give to you is that Governor Wike might be the last to join this party – the All Progressives Congress, others are lining up. They will soon be here.”
He said that APC believes Justice, unity and togetherness of Nigeria.
I”Isaid it long ago, not today when the party (PDP) was going through some challenges; I did say that there are 10 governors from the opposition parties that will join APC.
“We have seen one; one that is even as equal as 10, he has joined us, nine to go. Just mark my words; I don’t lie, I will never lie, and I will never deceive anybody,” the Kogi governor stressed.
He added, “Umahi is here with us, more are coming. I am very sure that Governor Wike will be the 10th person (governor) to join the APC, the remaining eight are already knocking, and by the grace of God, we are working all the necessary platform for them to come in here in peace, so they are on their way.”
