He recently revealed this while answering questions from State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
According to him, the reports hinting at such should be completely disregarded because the party does not see it happening again anytime soon.
Ishaku added that he is greatly shocked and embarrassed that Ben Ayade will suddenly dump the party for the APC, as party members expected more from him.
His words, “I don’t see that happening. And like I said, even his own was a shock to some of us. I don’t see that happening.”
“For Nigeria, we should hope for a vibrant opposition that will help to put and maintain the system. Democracy without opposition is not a democracy.”
“We are greatly shocked and embarrassed that he will suddenly dump the party for the APC because all of us see the PDP as an alternative to APC.”
“All PDP governors are doing well in their respective states. For him to defect to the APC, I don’t know the details of that.”
“But be that as it may, I believe that any democratic country must have an opposition; a viable opposition and opposition in itself is good for democracy.”
“If you don’t have an opposition, then the government in power can go astray.”
“But as to the reason why our colleague in the PDP will depart, I don’t know the details, and I can’t vouch for him.”
“However, I want to assure you that all the governors in the PDP are doing well in their respective states. Possibly because we are in the opposition and the pressure is on us and we are doing the best we can.”
“You may have the best of intentions; somebody may not agree with you. I think it is more of the governor’s decision as it affects him, and nobody should hold grief for that.”
