8 PDP Governors Float New Party by lekanolas: 6:16am On Aug 26, 2013
* Aliyu, Wamakko, Nyako, Kwankwaso, Amaechi, others involved

* PDM, Anenih disagree over party status

The crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is far from being over as eight governors elected on the party’s platform are set to dump the party for a new political party to be known as the Voice of the People, VOP.

The new political organisation is already awaiting registration by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

It was learnt that the arrowheads of the new party are Governors Rabiu Kwankwaso (Kano), Murtala Nyako (Adamawa), Aliyu Wamakko (Sokoto), Aliyu Babangida (Niger) and Sule Lamido (Jigawa).

The factional chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, NGF, Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State and Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara State are said to be part of those floating the new party.

The identity of the eighth PDP governor is still being shielded.

The source added that the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, is also being speculated to be part of the plot.

The PDP currently has 23 governors in its fold.

“We have filed our papers with INEC and we are only awaiting the registration as a political party. I can tell you that we will soon pull out of the PDP, which has made life unbearable for our leaders,” a source familiar with the registration process told National Mirror.

The Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Mr. Kayode Idowu, told National Mirror that there is nothing strange in an application for registration as a political party before the commission.

He noted that INEC receives applications for party registration on weekly basis. He, however, said he had no information about the VOP and those behind it.

This should be a consign to the PDP; especially the Gov. from the south south region, joining the opposition.

Staged conflicts playing out in amazing fashion, fooling the gullible! These walls of division will fall once the pawns have been dully sacrificed and the opposition left prone to an inevitable checkmate. APC would have a hard time fighting these veterans wielding the sceptre of incumbency. The aura of formidability APC once had has been thoroughly undermined by the duo of PDM and VOP.
