It appears that the ongoing crisis in the opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will continue to linger as two more governors have started defection talks with the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The governors might use the defection to curtail threats from APC in their states as the ruling party leadership was said to be discussing some terms with the affected governors.

In order to secure another term, one of the terms is the control of party structure.

Newsbreakers gathered that one of the governors is from the South while the other is a high profile governor from the Northwest, who is rumoured to have presidential ambition. But as things stands, he appears to have had a change of heart and views a second term as governor as a more attainable target, using the APC platform.

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, who recently defcetc to the APC on Thursday had hinted that three PDP governors, namely those of Bauchi (Bala Mohammed), Enugu (Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi) and Oyo (Seyi Makinde) were planning to defect to the APC.

However, Governor Ugwuanyi has since refuted the insinuation by Fani-Kayode that he was contemplating defection from PDP to APC.

It was gathered that due to the uncertainty in PDP ahead of preparations for 2023 poll,  some Senators and members of the House of Representatives are looking for alternative platforms.

This is an indication that some Senators and members of the House of Representatives may join the two governors if the defection pact sails through.
