​​PDP members decamping to APC ​are ​”stomach ​politicians​”​ — Niger governor, Aliyu

Babangida Aliyu

The Governor of Niger State, Mu’azu Aliyu, has described politicians defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressive Congress as people who are suffering from poverty of integrity, morality and principle.

Mr. Aliyu who was receiving guests at his office Wednesday in Minna, the Niger State capital, said electorates should not be deterred by defections from the PDP adding that those who should worry are members of the APC that will soon have problems of political profiteers in their hands.

“I will rather resign from politics instead of defecting from PDP. Those defecting from PDP based on the outcome of the presidential and National Assembly election lack principles of integrity and morality, they are indeed stomach politicians.”

“For principles of integrity, morality, we have chosen to remain in PDP. I heard people insinuating that I have dumped my party candidate for the APC candidate. It is a lie, I will never do such a thing.”

Speaking on the forthcoming election, he said the accusation by the Niger State APC against the PDP in terms of plans to rig in the April 11 gubernatorial election has shown that “they are indeed the very ones trying to rig and cause civil unrest. On our own side, we will abide by the rule to ensure nobody or party is cheated. The election must indeed reflect the wishes of the people.”

Meanwhile, Seidu Abubakar, a former chairman Wushishi local government who led a group of former local government chairmen in Niger state to the governor on a visit ​said​ that they have chosen to remain in the PDP based on principles and conviction.

“Despite the after effect of the presidential election, we remain undaunted. The Buhari effect has come and gone. The next election will not be APC show anymore because we do not have Buharis among the governorship candidates of the APC.”

    Mr. Aliyu,
    You are not saying anything new about PDP members. We knew that all along hence we voted your rogue party out. Did Fayose not publicise the “Stomach Infrastructure” mantra of PDP and did Dumbo not echo it days later ?

    As per those PDP rogues moving to APC, they are only exercising their fundamental right of association but would soon found out it is not business as usual as druggie FFK found out when he oved to APC and eventually had to move back to his natural habitat, PDP !

    Babangida Aliyu, you also lack integrity, morality and principle. You are someone who speaks with both sides of his mouth. We know what is worrying most is why you didn’t decamp with the five PDP Governors. You are now regretting because you know there is no room for you to decamp and even if you attempt to, you shall be rejected. Your people have shown they detest you by making sure you lost senatorial contest. Shameless man

    All this coming after that federal mugu called president Jonathan had nearly liquidated Nigeria’s money to satisfy the bottomless greed of the PDP membership,is it now that this governor is realizing that the PDP was made up of stomach politicians,I will like to say good morning to him,its possible he had been sleeping all this while.

      And if that happens, would you be happy? If GEJ didn’t encourage opposition, they wont be where they are today. He would have killed them

    Babangida Aliyu is a clown! A PDP thief talking about morality? After he woefully lost the Senatorial election as an incumbent Governor! He is one of the most useless Governors in the North. He did nothing. Terrible roads (even in Minna, the capital). Zero development in Niger state! Clown!
