Governor Isa Yuguda of Bauchi State in an interview culled from the Vanguard, bared his mind on the formation of the All Progressives Congress, APC, saying their emergence on the political scene is a welcome development.
Yuguda, who was originally elected on the platform of the All Nigeria People’s Party (ANPP) before defecting back to the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), said, “I’m happy about the development, which shows that Nigeria’s democracy is deepening.
“What the APC is doing is good for the polity. We, as a party, are also working hard to regain those states which they took from us. But one thing the APC people should note is that power belongs to God and that, no matter the kind of alliances they go into, they will never defeat PDP by the grace of God because of the good intention that the PDP and the president of this country have for Nigeria.”
Stressing that the intentions of opposition political parties in their quest for power is not genuine, Yuguda noted that “President Jonathan means well for Nigeria and he has a good heart to move the nation forward” and for that reason and others, “the opposition will never defeat the PDP.”
Explaining further, he said, “The hearts of some of the leaders of the merging parties are not good. In other words, they do not love this country and God will never allow them to defeat the PDP in any election. God will never allow these people to rule Nigeria.”
