There are indications that the All Progressives Congress APC may win some states from the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in the forthcoming Governorship Election, due to one reason or the other.
It should be recalled that APC has welcomed some members of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP while the APC had also welcomed the PDP members into APC.
However, the Defection of PDP Members to APC may affect the structure of the PDP in the forthcoming Governorship Election. The PDP may not win some states because the Defections will seriously affect the Party, to win future elections in those states.
One of the Northern PDP Controlled States, that APC may take over from the PDP is Taraba State. The reason is that, some members of the PDP, had dumped the Party for the ruling Party, All Progressives Congress APC in the state.
It should be recalled that, that the Deputy Minority Leader, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, recently dumped the PDP for APC in the state.
Senator Bwacha who represents Taraba South Senatorial District in the Senate, made known his move, when he visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential villa in Abuja.
However, Bwacha’s defection to APC may affect the structure of the PDP in the State because of his Position in the Senate.
Though, Governor Darius Ishaku will try all his efforts, to ensure that PDP wins the forthcoming Governorship Election but Senator Bwacha will use the federal might to influence the forthcoming Governorship Election in the state.
As a result of this, APC stands better chance of winning the forthcoming Governorship Election in the state. It should be recalled that Senator Bwacha gave the reason to justify his defection to APC.
He made it Known, that he took the decision, after the National Chairman of the PDP, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, forwarded the name of Senator Shaibu Isa Lau, as the new Senate Deputy
Deputy Minority Leader to the Senate.
However, Senator Bwacha will do everything Possible, to ensure that APC wins the Forthcoming Governorship Polls in the state and the Leadership of the Party, at the National level will compliment his efforts.
Another Northern PDP controlled State, that APC may win from PDP, is Benue State. APC may wrestle Power from PDP in the forthcoming Governorship Election in the state.
It should be recalled that one of Pioneer founder of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in the State, Barnabas Gemade had dumped the Party for APC.
Meanwhile, Gemade is contesting for Governorship Election under the Platform of the All Progressives Congress APC and he has started his consultations across the State.
However, Gemade can use his influence to win the Forthcoming Governorship Election, if the Leaders of the Party, can give him the Governorship ticket in the state.
It should be recalled, that Gemade is the former National Chairman of the PDP and he can use his residual influence to deliver the state for APC.
Another Point is that, the Minister for Special Duties, George Akume will also compliment the efforts of Barnabas Gemade to ensure the victory of APC in the state. As a result of this, APC may take over the state from the PDP.
