Jigawa state governor, Badaru Abubakar, on Monday said there was no truth in the reports that President the Senate, Bukola Saraki; and the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, were considering leaving the ruling All Progressives Congress.
The governor spoke with State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Monday.
He said, “It is not true that Tambuwal and Saraki are negotiating with the PDP; we have not heard of that.
“Some few weeks back, there was rumour about the governor of Benue and he made it clear at our last NEC that he is not moving anywhere. Those are rumours flying around but they don’t have consequence.
“We are united: Governor Tambuwal is with us and the distinguished senator Bukola Saraki, the Senate President, is also with APC and we have not had any reason to think that they are negotiating elsewhere. No.”
