BREAKING: Massive Jubilation In The North As Babangida Releases Statement On Decamping To The Ruling APC, Ahead Of 2019

There was massive jubilation in some parts of Niger State, on Monday, as the former Governor of the State Dr. Babangida Aliyu, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said that he has no intention of defecting to the All Progressives Congress, APC, ahead of the 2019 elections.

Aliyu made the remark on Monday, in Minna, following the defection of 34,826 Politicians from other political parties, including Alhaji Aminu Yusuf, the Deputy Chairman of PDP in the State.

Recall, that many of the Politicians who abandoned their various political parties to defect to the APC were mainly Aliyu’s close Allies in the State.

“I have no intention of defecting to the APC, because I believe in the PDP. I had the opportunity of decamping to the APC when I led the G-7 Governors, but did not do so, because of my belief in the PDP.

“What we protested then was to correct some of the abnormality in the PDP, but not to defect to the APC.

“If I were a selfish Politician, then I will have defected to the APC then. Maybe I would have become a Minister now’’, he said.

He noted that the PDP made him a Governor, saying that it was a strong political party, if not for internal wranglings that made it to lose the 2015 Presidential election.

The former Governor stated that the party had started working towards correcting the wrongs at the various levels.
