According to Usman “it is now rush hour, Governor Sani Bello ought to know by now that the APC in Niger state is on life support, gasping for breath with the current mass exodus of members to the PDP.
“Recently, Hon. Ibrahim Ebbo a former Representative for Agaie/Lapai and an Adviser to the Government, Hon. Ado Tafa a former Reps member dumped the APC with thousands of their supporters to the PDP.
“Others who dumped the APC to join the PDP are Alhaji Aliyu Mohammed Abba (Dan Abba) former chairman of Agwara LGA and a one time senatorial candidate for Niger North, Hon. Abdulkadir Wali, a former State Assembly Aspirant for Lapai Local Government”.
Usman added that,”currently, 35 prominent Nigerilites, public officers, former and present legislators, Businessmen: have all indicated interest in joining and working for the PDP”.
According to him “the planned Seven month leave is to enable him (Sani Bello) avoid the impending defeat of the APC at the polls in 2023; as such we call on him to kindly prepare to handover and ensure that he doesn’t waste any funds on APC sinking ship.
“The mass turnout across the state at PDP rallies and the poor attendance of all APC gatherings in the state is a pointer to what to expect at the polls, after the APC has mismanaged the state for the past 8 years.
“We wish Governor Sani Bello a peaceful exit and retirement, we invite all APC candidates and their followers to immediately collapse into the PDP to work together for the development of Niger state, just like the PDP campaign sl.n goes “Together We KAN”.
