Sokoto State Governor Aliyu Wamakko has said there is no going back to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) by he and four of his colleagues, who defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said the defection of himself and Governors Rabiu Kwankwaso (Kano), Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers), Murtala Nyako (Adamawa) and Abdulfatah Ahmed (Kwara) to the APC is a forgone conclusion.

President Goodluck Jonathan last Thursday said the PDP would not miss the governors because they cannot even win ward elections.

Wamakko described the President’s comment as a joke, adding: “The President knows the value of the governors in their respective states; when a man says he doesn’t need an eye, it is because he cannot afford it.

“I think you know it sounds funny because many Nigerians know that he is just joking. Many Nigerians know who we are in our respective states. I think it is just a joke he is making.

“He labours hard to bring any of us back but he cannot. When a blind man says he doesn’t need an eye, you know he cannot get one. I don’t want to talk about Jonathan, I better talk about other issues.”
