Vanguard PDP governors Mixed reactions Tuesday trailed the decision of five of the seven aggrieved governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC).While former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, former Head of State, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and Lagos State Governor, Senator Bola Tinubu, welcomed the development, the presidency allayed fears that their movement to the opposition could hurt President Goodluck Jonathan's chances for a second term, when he makes up his mind.Atiku, a member of the New PDP, in a statement by his media office, expressed his belief in Nigerians' rights to exercising their freedom of association, as enshrined in the 1999 Constitution.He said: "I also long for a day where we celebrate a multi-party system where political parties make improving the lives of Nigerians their top priority, instead of our current politics of corrupt cronyism and personal destruction. Today's news is a positive step in both directions."Buhari, one of the national leaders of the APC, said the defection by the governors would boost the efforts of the opposition to unseat the PDP in 2015.Noting that with the realignment of forces, PDP was finished, Buhari said all APC needed to do to ensure victory at the poll was to make sure that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was equipped to deliver credible election.Buhari said: "For the governors, they are in charge of their states and it is a very serious decision. As far I am concerned, PDP is finished. With the coming together of the governors, members of the New PDP and APC, there is nothing remaining to overrun PDP in 2015.
