Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) ruled out any chances of Governors Aliyu Wamakko and Rabiu Kwankwaso of Sokoto and Kano States respectively returning to the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) despite their meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan in Abuja on Sunday.
The party gave the assurance in a statement issued on Monday in Lagos by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed.
It said the Governors were at the Presidential Villa at the invitation of President Jonathan, adding, “'Being the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, there is no reason why any Governor will not honour an invitation by the President.”
“'There is therefore nothing extraordinary about the correct decision of the two Governors to meet with the President, even as we note that the decision by some PDP Governors to attend the meeting is purely within their prerogative.”
APC said there was an “unnecessary spin” forwarded to give the impression that the Governors.
He maintained the two governors were now “proud members” of the APC family.
“The decision by the Governors to leave the PDP is irreversible, in spite of the meeting. Therefore, Governors Wamakko and Kwankwaso remain APC Governors,” the opposition party said.
