He stated that the APC leaders in the state led by former Governor Timipre Sylva are currently engaged in a cheap recruitment exercise of wooing supporters to defect to the party by dropping the name of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Keku noted that the former governor has been boasting that the President has given his word that he will deploy federal might in the forthcoming governorship elections in the state, as part of the strategy of the APC to wrest power from the PDP-led government.

Keku said the PDP will resist any attempt by the APC-led federal government to interfere in the governorship poll in the state.
