Two More Governors Might Dump APC This Week – Buhari 2019 Spokesman
spokesman of the campaign organization for the 2019 re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari, Festus Keyamo has said that two more Governors under the All Progressive Congress (APC), might leave the party in the coming days.
In a statement released on Sunday, Keyamo, however, insisted that the defections noticed from the ruling party at the National assembly and Benue state, will not affect the chances of Buhari in next year’s general election.
52 APC federal legislators moved to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the African Democratic Congress (ADC) last week.
Governor of Benue, Samuel Ortom, also resigned his membership of the APC.
Keyamo is optimistic that this defections posed no threat to Buhari, even if Aminu Tambuwal, Governor of Sokoto, and Abdulfatah Ahmed, Governor of Kwara pull out of the APC.
“The latest defections by some national assembly members and the governor of Benue state WILL NOT harm the re-election of President Buhari in 2019. This would even be so if the much-rumoured two more governors also defect from the APC,” he added.
