Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State says the reason some governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are defecting to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is that the opposition party has become very weak and the situation is getting worse.
According to Governor Sule, the depleting of PDP by poaching its governors and lawmakers is a part of politicking.
Speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Sule said the APC is in the process of getting stronger.
“We have been a very strong party and we are doing the best we can to continue to be stronger and the only way we can be stronger is to get more and more people and the right people to get are the leaders of the opposition. That’s what we are trying to do and God so kind we are doing that,” the governor stated.
Sule’s comments come on the heels of the latest defection move by Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State, an exercise that Mr. Sule says is a signal suggesting that the opposition leaders are seeing what President Muhammadu Buhari is doing.
