The All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday wooed Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State to join its fold.
APC Vice-Chairman in North-East, Umar Duhu said during a courtesy call to the governor that Adamawa State is more of APC than the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Duhu said the visit to the governor was at the instance of the APC National Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande.
Duhu said: “Adamawa is an APC state. The governor perhaps might not be a card-carrying member of our party, but all his supporters are members of our party. So, Adamawa State Government is APC controlled-government.”
He said before the merger of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) with other political parties to form the APC, many members of the PDP had joined the then ANPP.
“Many People in this government left the PDP enmasse; about 300,000 of them to join the ANPP, and I received them as the then chairman of the ANPP and I gave them membership card of the ANPP, except the governor, who said he was still in talks with his colleagues. Very soon he (Nyako) is going to join the ship because he no longer fits into the system of the PDP,” he said.
