3 PDP governors set to dump party

10 November 2014, 19:28

Abuja - Three Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors, who are strong supporters of President Goodluck Jonathan are set to dump the party for other political parties, reports NewsDay.

The governors are Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue State; Governor Sullivan Chime and Liyel Imoke of Cross River State.

Their decision to dump the party follows the unresolved political crisis in their states by the party’s national secretariat.

The three governor are currently vying for senatorial seats in their sates.

The purported agreement between President Goodluck Jonathan and PDP senators to return 40 out of 72 senators who want to return to the red chamber, has shut out the governors.
