Yero, Chime, Jang: We Won’t Join New PDP

Baraje-TukurContrary to media reports that more Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, governors have agreed to join the “New PDP” led by Abubakar Baraje, some of the governors have distanced themselves from the move.

The governors are the Plateau State Governor, Jonah Jang; Kaduna State Governor, Ramalan Yero; and the Enugu State Governor, Sullivan Chime.

Jang, who is the factional chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum, denied being party to such plans.

He spoke through his Commissioner for Information and Communication, Abraham Yiljap.

“I can only ask how can?” said Yiljap.

“How can he (Jang) abandon a house he built and live in another person’s house. It is just unthinkable and somebody’s wishful thinking,” he stressed.

Gov. Ramalan Yero of Kaduna State said reports about him planning to join the New PDP were untrue and the figment of the imagination of mischief makers.

Speaking through Ahmed Maiyaki, his Director General on Media and Publicity, Yero said, “This is totally untrue. It is the figment of the imagination of those behind such wild rumours.”

Enugu State Commissioner for Information, Mr. Chuks Ugwoke, also dismissed insinuations that the state Governor, Sullivan Chime, was planning to ditch the Bamanga Tukur-led PDP for the New PDP.

According to him, “It is not true at all. That can never happen. Never!

“It would never happen. Governor Chime is 100 per cent with President Jonathan.The governor is even the one making others to see reasons to be with the President”, Ugwoke maintained.
