The Director-General, DG, of the Progressive Governors Forum, PGF, Alhaji Salihu Lukman, has said that the defection of the Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressives Congress, APC, is the beginning of electoral tsunami for the PDP in the South-East, .
Lukman also expressed optimism that President Muhammadu Buhari would guarantee a level playing field for all Aspirants in the APC, in the build up to the 2023 elections.
The PGF DG, who spoke with Newsmen on Monday, in Abuja, said that a level playing field has been conceived, nurtured, and is gaining more traction by the day.
He stated that the defection of political bigwigs into the APC, new membership registration, and revalidation of the membership register, would go a long way in enhancing the dynamics and political profile of the APC, not just in the South-East, but across the country.
His words: “It is the result of the President’s sincere desire, driven by patriotic fervor running on diligent thought and efficient and clinical execution, that you will only need to watch as we progress towards 2023.
“Now this is it, whatever anybody would say, this is the attraction in APC, and for me as an individual, I see more of the potential that anybody who is courageous to take risk, and can canvass for position, there is ample space for you in APC.”
