Defectors’ll return to PDP soon, says ex-gov Aliyu


A former governor of Niger State, Dr. Babangida Aliyu, has said members of the Peoples Democratic Party, who defected to other parties for sundry reasons will soon come back to the former ruling party.

Aliyu said on Sunday at his Minna residence, during an interview that he and the PDP could not be intimidated.

The ex-governor stated, “In politics, there are people who join and stick to principles; there are those who join for food; there are those who join so that they may be pushed for other reasons to be elsewhere.

“So, movement may not be for only one reason, sometimes it might be pressure from one’s community.

“Just recently, Andy Uba and Osita Chidoka, strong members of the PDP, crossed over to the All Progressives Congress and the United Progressives Party, respectively.

“Oftentimes, people are following their stomach too. Don’t be surprised, between now and 2019, a lot of people will cross over to the PDP.”

Aliyu said the opposition party was not intimidated by the status of the APC, adding that “anything that happens to you is from God.”

He said, “I believe in destiny and I believe nothing happens without God’s knowledge. Intimidation is not part of my understanding of human character. I see intimidation as when one is scared or frightened or that which will make sure you do nothing personally.

“I am not in any way intimidated. I also believe that certain things happen to you to bring you back to your senses or to enlighten you on certain things.”

The former governor called on the PDP to put its house in order, stating that the members should not allow inordinate ambition to tear the party apart ahead of the 2019 polls.

Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.
