Despite the crisis rocking ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), the governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello, has declared that about 10 governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would soon dump their party.
TheCable reports that he spoke when he appeared as a guest on Sunrise Daily, a programme on Channels Television, on Friday, June 25.
Legit.ng gathered that while responding to a question on if the APC would fall apart when President Muhammadu Buhari leaves office, Bello said that was not possible.
The governor also responded to the question on if Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the APC, was currently being sidelined, considering recent events.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Bello expressed confidence that the governing APC would continue to wax stronger notwithstanding the crisis threatening the soul of the party in recent times.
It was reported that Governor Bello made the comment while featuring on a Channels programme on Friday, June 26.
The governor debunked allegations that the happenings in the party was a grand plot to scheme out the party's national leader, Ahmed Bola Tinubu out of 2023 political arrangements.
In another report, the PDP's candidate in the Kogi 2019 governorship election, Musa Wada, received the Supreme Court's final verdict on his candidacy.
The apex court in Abuja on Friday, June 26, ruled that Wada was rightfully the candidate of the party in the state for the poll. In a verdict delivered by Justice Amina Augie, the court affirmed Wada's candidacy.
Justice Augie, on behalf of the court, said that the suit (filed by Abubakar Ibrahim) which challenged Wada’s candidacy on the claim that there were illegal thumb printing of 600 ballot boxes lacks merit.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Wada, the defeated candidate of the PDP in the 2019 Kogi governorship election had been cleared of a certificate forgery case filed against him.
The Federal High Court sitting in Lokoja, Kogi state capital, struck out the suit filed by one Abraham John for lacking merit.
