Some governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) sneaked into the Presidential Villa at night, Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina, has claimed.
PDP governors at the end of their meeting in Bauchi on Monday, accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of coercing their members with questionable records into its fold.
They also accused Buhari of allegedly turning the Villa into APC secretariat, where he constantly presided over party’s meetings.
However, Adesina said the PDP governors were frustrated over the defection of their members to the ruling party.
In a television interview in the United Kingdom, Adesina claimed more PDP governors were in talks with the APC leadership on plans to defect.
He said: “There will be a massive unveiling of infrastructure come 2022; starting from commissioning of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway which the PDP could not achieve in 16 years, to the AKK Pipeline and so many highways. These massive projects will make a lot of PDP governors to join the APC.”
“Between now and 2023, there will be more confusion in the party. No one makes noise when they (PDP) were holding BoT (Board of Trustees) meetings during Obasanjo (Olusegun) Yar’Adua (Umaru) and Jonathan (Goodluck) regimes. Why are they complaining now?” He queried.
