The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu is reportedly planning to lure four Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors.
This is coming after Tinubu met with the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike in London.
A source that spoke with Daily Sun, revealed that Tinubu has had informal meetings with the governors.
There are speculations that two out of the governors who are in the United Kingdom may meet with Tinubu.
The source revealed that the four governors are from the South East, South West, North Central and North East.
According to the source, out of the four governors, two are re-contesting while the other two would end their term in 2023.
The source said, “PDP is in crisis. That is known already. But leaders of the party have escalated the issue, especially Atiku’s old friends who were PDP governors.
“While leaders are trying to resolve the issue, they’re putting more fire. In the coming weeks, Nigerians will see some realignment in the polity.
“Remember what happened to Jonathan. Some PDP governors and leaders left the party before the 2015 presidential elections. Those people who left were those who worked against Jonathan.
“Atiku was one of them. He knows that. How can he, in all honesty, allow the APC to even have the guts to approach governors of PDP? If they’ve told him that he can win without governors, they’re lying to him. These governors being approached, have nothing to lose really. Two of them are leaving in 2023. The other two believe they can win without Atiku’s support. If APC succeeds, that will be the end of Atiku’s aspiration. Already, Peter Obi has made serious inroads into his base in the South. Allowing the APC to do the same will spell doom for Atiku. These governors are ready to sink with Wike. I don’t know why he has their support. But they believe in him. I hope the right thing is done soon.”
