Published

on

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to focus on solving the many issues currently bedeviling the country, rather than poaching PDP governors and members.

The FidelinfoNews gathered that this assertion was made when the PDP Governors Forum led by Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal Visited their Zamfara State counterpart, Bello Matawalle, to commiserate with him over the Tutuwada Market fire, the governors also made an N100 million donation to the Zamfara state government to help ease victim’s plight.

A statement by Rivers State Governor’s media Aide, Kelvin Ebiri noted that Tambuwal said the APC had opted to play petty politics with the victim’s misfortune instead of genuinely commiserating with the people of the state who have been grappling with insecurity and the latest fire incident.

Tambuwal further urged the APC to desist from playing politics and save Nigerians from the prevailing high level of insecurity and poverty.

While also speaking, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike said “All of us know today the level of insecurity in Nigeria. Instead of APC concentrating and fight insecurity, what the party is doing is moving from one state to the other to poach people. Now, you can imagine the insult, a party in Federal Government that declared Zamfara a no-flight zone, the same party is coming to woo you to join them. I can’t understand it.”

Wike also urged Matawalle not to be intimidated by the antics of the APC, who he accused of fuelling the insecurity in the state.
