The Nasarawa state Governor, Abdullahi Sule, has debunked report that 11 northern governors of the All Progressives Congress APC, held a secret meeting with the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Atiku Abubakar.

Sule made this known while speaking with the state party official, members of his campaign council, and elected and appointed government officials at the government house in Lafia on Thursday, January 5.

The state governor noted that the false reports are works of the opposition he described as "parasites in government" who are bent on blackmailing the governor in order to get the favour of the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.

According to Sule, the northern APC governors are the most pressured to ensure that Tinubu wins the 2023 presidential election.

His statement reads in part:

"Nobody wants Asiwaju to win this election more than the APC governors from the North. The reason is when the APC governors from the North realized that we were trying to retain the position in the North; the APC governors rose to the occasion and said no."
