'The Defection Of Our Colleagues, Especially Governors, Pained Us So Much' - Okorocha

THE Governors of the All Progressive Congress (APC) said they were thoroughly pained that their colleagues had left the party.

The APC Governors stated this on Thursday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at his hometown, Daura, Katsina State.

The ruling party has so far lost two state Governors to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) since the recent gale of defection began.

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue and Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara recently dumped the APC.

“We had wished that none of them, especially the governors, had left the party and it pains us so much,” Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha who is also the Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum said.

He explained that this was because they had associated and “related together as brothers. All of a sudden, you don’t see one of your own; we feel it.”
