2019: We may go to polls a divided family, unless – APC governors

All Progressives Congress (APC) governors have advised the party to bring all warring factions together, or else the party would go to the 2019 elections a divided family.

The chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum, and Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, gave the advice after a closed door meeting between five APC governors and President Muhammadu Buhari, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The governors included Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos; Muhammed Abubakar of Bauchi; Rochas Okorocha of Imo; Kashim Shettima of Borno and Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state.

The Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, were also at the meeting, which lasted for about an hour.

“What is important to us is that we must not go into this battle a divided family and we want to make sure that all governors are intact, all National Assembly members are intact while going into this battle.

“We will never speak differently, we will speak as united leaders of the party.

“Our election this time will not engage in castigations, we will be talking on issues, Nigerians are tired of political abuses, what we want to be talking about are issues and track records of people involved in our elections.

“Nigerians are very wise now, before they elect anybody, the will ask questions, what has been your track record, who were you before and who are you now and everything about you.

“For that reason we are confident that 2019, APC will pull through,”Okorocha said.
