The spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress presidential campaign council, Festus Keyamo, SAN, has said he’s not aware of any talks between his party and the G5 governors of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
This was after the governors held a closed-door meeting in Lagos where they said the window of reconciliation with their party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, was still open.
Speaking to Punch, Keyamo said his party was not banking on the governors because they were still members of the PDP despite their grievances against their party.
Keyamo said, “I don’t know of any talks between APC and the G-5. At least, not to my knowledge. However, despite their quarrel with the PDP, as of today, they are still members of the party.
“Let me repeat it for the umpteenth time. For us, we are proceeding from the position of calculating our strength, without thinking of the quarrel or weakness of the PDP. We are not depending on it
“If after calculating our strength and the implosion continues in the PDP by the end of the day, we can then consider it as an added advantage, but not a factor to tilt the scale to our victory. It may make victory easier if they come through the door we have opened for them. Anything can happen. But we are not looking out for that possibility. We are just saying in politics, anything can happen.”
