8 PDP Govs In Secret Pact With APC - Saturday Sun by WisdomFlakes: 5:58am On Jan 31, 2015
Barely two weeks to Nigeria’s presidential election, what can best be described as high-wire politics is playing out in the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), with about eight of its governors now in a secret alliance with sections of the leadership of the main opposi­tion party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).

[b]Saturday Sun gathered that the PDP governors went into the alliance in their individual capacity and not as a group in order to get the sympathy or soft landing from the leadership of the opposition party should power change hands after the February 14 elections.

According to an impeccable source close to one of the affected governors, “the political climate is so cloudy and hazy that the leadership of our party (PDP) is not showing any sign of confidence that we can win the coming elections, especially the presidential election. The wise thing any smart PDP governor can do in this circumstance is to play safe and have a kind of working understanding with the leadership of the opposition party (APC) so that if power eventually goes to them, one can actually feel safe and welcome in case there is the need to change political platform immediately.”

Some of the governors, it was learnt went into the secret pact after the national leadership of PDP denied them control of the party’s structures in their states and as a result, their hopes to pick their successors and equally go to the senate were dashed. Others, it was further learnt, had to go into the partnership to save face after discovering that Buhari has huge following in their states.[/b]

The PDP had, in November 2013, lost five of its governors, in a major political earthquake, to the APC. The PDP governors that defected to the APC then were Mr. Chibuike Amaechi (Rivers), Alhaji Ahmed Abdulfatah (Kwara), Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso (Kano), Alhaji Murtala Nyako (Adamawa), and Alhaji Aliyu Wamakko (Sokoto).

Two other governors — Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu (Niger) and Alhaji Sule Lamido (Jigawa) — declined to move with their colleagues to the opposition party after they had shown initial signs of defection.

Over a year later, eight more governors who appear disenchanted with the party may not be defecting formally but might be working to mobilize votes for the APC presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari instead of the PDP flagbearer, President Goodluck Jonathan.

According to some details of the alliance, while some of the eight governors agreed to mobilize total support for Buhari, which will get him majority of total votes cast in their states, others are working on giving minimum backing which will enable the APC candidate to secure the required 25 per cent of total votes cast in their states.

Saturday Sun gathered that two of the governors in the alliance are in the South South region, two in the South East, two in North East and two in North Central. An indication that all is still not well within the PDP emerged last week when the Deputy Governor of Niger State, Alhaji Ahmed Ibeto, and over 200 political office holders defected from the ruling PDP to the APC.

Announcing his defection to newsmen in Minna on Monday last week, Ibeto said: “I am on my way to welcome our party leader and presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, at Minna airport for his campaign rally in Niger State.”

One of the governors from a northern state, who justified the support he may be giving Buhari at the polls, told Saturday Sun: “Whatever support my people and I will give Gen. Buhari is informed by the reality on ground in this part of the country. There is no need denying the fact that Buhari is a phenomenon in the North and his kind of followership is fanatical. To secure this state from any post-election violence and the anger of our people, we have to be seen as supporting Buhari even though we are in different political parties. The situation is also not made easy for us at the state level because of these Abuja politicians who stay there and tell the president different lies which prevent him from knowing the truth about the reality on ground.”

When contacted to have his view on the secret alliance, National Publicity Secretary of APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed neither denied nor confirmed the development. “I am not personally involved in such talks but I can tell you we are getting enormous support from every stratum of the society and in this case, every support that will give effect to the change the nation so much needs at this critical time is a patriotic effort”, he added.

Dismissing this as a ruse, National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh denied any deal between aggrieved PDP governors and APC leadership to ensure victory for Buhari.

Speaking with Saturday Sun on phone, Metuh stated that the idea was being orchestrated by what he called the APC propaganda machinery.

“We don’t engage in wishful thinking. We don’t indulge in falsehood or propaganda. Even some of our governors that lost senatorial tickets are working with us. All our governors are with us. So, how can they do a deal with APC? We challenge them to mention our governors working against us, publicly. It is APC’s wishful thinking”, he argued.

There is no way Jonathan can have a second term. He has failed and can never be allowed to plunge this country into misfortune for another 4 years. Someone should tell the jesters, Tompolo and Dokubo to get ready their war equipments because Jonathan will be ousted by FeBUHARI 14.

PDP is very desperate and jittery, to say the least. I'd be scared too if I were in their shoes. I'd hate to be in GEJ's shoes right now; all his 'loyalists' are beginning to waver as they see the hand-writing on the wall. They're only being pragmatic. This is politics, after all.

PDP looking for excuses already? grin grin

The problem is the last primaries. Many people are angry and aggrieved....and as such that may rebound to the opposition's favor.

PDP must do some bridge building fast. That's why you employed Muazu....

Modified: Some PDP gents here are saying Lies. I won't be surprised if the report is not true......which is why your party better work harder at appeasing aggrieved members.

People who ruined jonathan's chances of winning

1. Jonathan - corruption is a competition under his watch
2. Okonjo - always deceiving the president that all is well with the economy
3. Diezani - there's something in this woman's punnany that makes jona do as she says
4. Akpabio - making the president feel that all PDP governors are behind him
5. Mama peace - thinks her office is on the same level with that of the president
6. Asari & co - always threatening the peace of the country & the president does nothing about it
7. Okupe, Abati & Omokiri - always doing gbeborun to what the opposition is doing & forgetting their role in the process
8. Fayose - his controversial advert on the front page of some news paper turn out to be a campaign in favour of Buhari
9. Abba moro - organised a job scam that claimed the lives of many youth & also duped them of their money
10. APC - their well organised primary that brought the emergence of GMB as their flag bearer is a blow to jonathan & pdp at large
11. Buhari - the Ijaya himself,the enemy of corruption, his campaign against corruption is already unsettling some members of the PDP who will have to leave this country or risk jail should GMB win come Feb 14th.

I won't be surprise if some PDP governors pitch their tent with APC since immunity clause will be abolished
Even OBJ & IBB already have their tent close to APC
Nobody won go jail cheesy grin
It won't be business as usual

It's only a 'lie' simply coz your mind refuses to accept a clear fact, that the center can no longer hold for this administration. That your mind refuses to accept it doesn't change it.

I finally made out time to watch the N5million
per hour Anti-Buhari vitriolic documentary
being aired on AIT and NTA last night and that made me decide Buhari must win. I have
seen propaganda before, but never seen such
irresponsible and divisive documentary of the
highest order. President Goodluck Jonathan
and his team condescended so low and threw
human dignity to dogs; decorum flew out of
the window.
After peddling all sorts of lies, rumours and
unfounded propaganda and still nothing else
to say to complete and justify the 1 hour
N5million prime time “documentlies”, they
now moved to attacking General Muhammad
Buhari’s family. Why the hatred? What was
the offence of Late Mrs Buhari and the late
daughter being discussed in the sad
documentary?
There is something morbid about GEJ
campaign team. Its either they are talking
about GMB dying soon or about his late wife
or late daughter. They just love talking about
death. Why?
If you are reading my message and you are
either a parent or one wishing to become a
parent one day, I pray that may you not
experience death of your child/
children...talkless of being taunted and
mocked!
Muhammad Buhari’s first daughter Zulai
passed away after delivering a baby. Zulai
Buhari, who was 40 died from sickle cell
anaemia. Buhari lost a lovely daughter to
death on November 29, 2012 after battling
with sickle cell anaemia for 40 years! This is
what Goodluck Jonathan and PDP has turned
to campaign theme! Mocking the death of
Buhari’s daughter.
Not yet done with morbidity, they moved to
talk about Buhari’s late wife who died in
2006. The documentary mentioned how he
divorced his late wife and some other beer
parlour gist.
Is this the sort of campaign we should be
getting from an incumbent President when
economy is collapsing and exchange rate is
now out of control with $1 at N207?
Again, Muhammad Buhari has never referred
or attack President Jonathan’s family. He has
never said Dame is barren, he has never said
GEJ has children out of wedlock; he has
never blamed GEJ for bad drinking habit. He
only concentrates on issue based campaign!
Let campaign be issue based and enough of
attacking Buhari’s family.
MAY HER DEATH HUNT THOSE (PDP
AGENTS) THAT MOCK HER IN DEATH.
