“I am the chairman of the PGF and when I speak, I speak on behalf of my colleagues, 20 governors.

“A party like APC that is in control of 20 states out of 36, and also has produced a president and members of the Federal Executive Council in the majority.

“If the election is the game of numbers, it means the majority will win, which the other party can provide or boast of as such an asset.”

Ganduje, in his remarks, expressed satisfaction that the governors visited, saying it was a big blessing to the party.

He said the party’s leadership was happy and confident in the governors and would do all it takes to maintain a good relationship with them.

Ganduje added, ”Because the governors were assisting the party and making it proud as an institution, its leadership would also help to protect their interests.”
