Former minister reacts to betrayal comments

2015-01-29 12:13
Lafia - Former Minister of Information, Labaran Maku has reacted to Senate President David Mark and other leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) allegations that he betrayed President Goodluck Jonathan by dumping the party, reports Sahara Reporters.

Maku, who is also governorship candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Nasarawa State, said he was surprised that Mark and other PDP leaders would peddle lies suggesting he claimed to have had Jonathan’s approval to leave the PDP.

He said he never claimed before anybody that he spoke with the President and had his approval to leave for APGA.

He noted that the reactions of the PDP leaders to his defection to APGA shows that the PDP was jittery as a result of his exit from the party.

He stated that the real issue in the state is that some people within and outside it believed that no Christian should ever be governor of the state.
