PDP has been weak since President Buhari came to in- Gov. Sule

The Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule has blasted the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for being so weak which is making for more defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The governor noted this while speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today. He noted that the APC is in the process of getting stronger.
According to Governor Sule, the depleting of the PDP by poaching its governors and lawmakers is a part of politicking.

“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.

Recall recently that Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State had defected from the opposition party to the ruling party. Governor Sule noted that the governor’s defection suggests that the opposition leaders are seeing what President Muhammadu Buhari is doing.

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”.

Sule boasted that the ruling party 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 good governance.

Contrary to Sule’s view, the People Democratic Party’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, has assured Nigerians that the opposition party is stable and unwavering, even in the face of recent defections by some of its governors and lawmakers.

While speaking on the recent wave of defection, Ologbondiyan said “we have all our structures established in the 36 states and the 774 local governments, as well as over 2000 wards that we have in Nigeria, our party is very stable”.

Ologbondiyan noted that although some governors are decamping to the APC, the people who elected them are not making the same move. He stressed that while the governors may have been lost, the people remain securely behind the opposition party.
