Nigeria In One Minute

APC chief silent over purported defection of Ayade, Ugwuanyi, Umahi, as Timi Frank dumps party



As far as the National Vice Chairman, South-South, of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Hilliard Eta is concerned, the purported moves by three state governors of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to defect to the party still falls within the realm of speculation.

Reports making the rounds have it that Governors Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Ben Ayade (Cross River) and Dave Umahi (Ebonyi), as well as Senator Godswill Akpabio, who is the Senate Minority Leader, have concluded arrangements to defect to the APC.

Eta, who claimed ignorance of the unfolding development, told The Guardian that he would not rush into baring his mind over an unsubstantiated story.
