Politics APC Woos 5 PDP Governors Ahead Of 2019 Eections [See LIST]



Strong indications have emerged that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is making serious efforts towards gaining more grounds in the South-East and South- South ahead of the 2019 general elections.

According to New Telegraph, the targets of the federal ruling party are some governors in the geo-political zones where the party performed woefully in 2015 general elections.


Sources close to the APC indicated that top on the list of those being approached are:

1. Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano

2. Ebonyi State Governor, Chief David Umahi

3. Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu

4. Cross River State Governor, Prof. Ben Ayade and

5. Akwa Ibom, Mr. Udom Emmanuel.

New Telegraph gathered that towards achieving the goal, some top shots of the APC in the two regions have been reaching out to the governors, with a view to convincing them to join the APC and ditch the PDP because of the continued crisis between Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and Senator Ahmed Makarfi factions.

This approach some of the Governors have denied involvement.
