Popular Northern Governor Speaks On 11 APC Governors Dumping Tinubu For PDP’s Atiku



Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has dismissed reports that 11 Northern All Progressives Congress (APC) governors were secretly meeting with the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.

Speaking during a meeting with the state party officials, members of his campaign council, as well as elected and appointed government officials, at the Government House in Lafia, the state capital, Sule revealed why APC northern governors agreed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor should come from the South.

He accused the opposition and parasites in government of spreading false information about governors meeting with Atiku.


According to the Nasarawa State governor, there was no reason for any APC governor from the North to meet with Atiku, considering the fact that the APC governors from the region strongly insisted that the next president should come from the South.

Sule said, “These lies are coming from mainly two categories of people. One is the opposition that is doing everything possible to distract us because nobody wants Asiwaju to win this election more than the APC governors from the North. The reason is when the APC governors from the North realized that we were trying to retain the position in the North, the APC governors rose to the occasion and said no, this position has to go to the South in order for us to be respected as people who believe in Nigeria.

“After Baba (President Muhammadu Buhari) holds this office for eight years with the help of the South, if today we say we still want to hold on to the position, the world will not respect Northerners. And that was our only reason. And not everybody was with us on this page but God so kind, we had a President who listens and he listened to us and of course we succeeded and Asiwaju takes the position.”

He called on the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, to be wary of “the falsehood” that Northern APC governors held secret meetings with Atiku.

“I keep telling Asiwaju and I will tell him again, you, Atiku, Yar’Adua are on the same page. Nobody amongst these parasites understands Atiku more than you. If any governor is meeting Atiku privately in his house, you Asiwaju should know better.

“Don’t listen to them and don’t allow yourself to be carried away. If anybody wants you to win this election, it’s the APC Northern governors,” he said.
