More Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors will join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Kogi Governor Yahaya Bello has boasted.

The Governors, he said, will join in the coming weeks.

Bello disclosed this to newsmen on Thursday shortly after a crucial meeting of the party’s Strategy and Contact Committee at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.

Bello, who stood in for Governor Abubakar Badaru, the Chairman of the Contact and Strategy Committee at the meeting, said the APC is the party everybody wants to be.
He claimed even Governors from the opposition party know that things are happening in APC.

“You know, I have a Committee that is called Mobilisation of Youths, Women and People Living with Disabilities. We have been mobilizing them to join our party.

“As much as we are mobilising youths, women and people living with disabilities, we are equally mobilising members of other political parties, including Governors.

“Remember, there are others that youthful and those that are youthful in hearts so we are bringing them into the party. You will see them in numbers.

“I told you that it is only one last Governor that will be the last one to join our party and you know everybody is coming into the party because this is where things are happening and this is the party that is moving the country forward. That is why you see us strong and we are waxing stronger and moving forward in unison.”


On the outcome of the meeting, Bello said 17 sub-committees of have been formed within the main committee to enable them come out with more engagements for the next meeting.

The Governor also said there will be periodic reports to the party because it is a standing Committee, and not an Ad-hoc Committee.
