Alh Idris Ibrahim Tanahu noted that those still in the PDP are people whose traits are similar to that of the governorship candidate of the PDP in the state. 

His said: “I pity those still associating themselves with the characters fielded by the opposition. They’ve no followers because many of them don’t possess the qualities of leadership that we have seen in Alh. Yahaya Bello and Alh. Usman Ododod. We have decided to join the team of people with integrity and good character.”
