The Governor of Niger State, Mu’azu Aliyu has described the members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who are defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC) as ‘stomach politicians.’

Aliyu also said that he would rather retire from politics than join the APC.

The governor made the statements on Wednesday, April 8, 2015 while receiving guests at his office in Minna, the state capital.

“I will rather resign from politics instead of defecting from PDP. Those defecting from PDP based on the outcome of the presidential and National Assembly election lack principles of integrity and morality, they are indeed stomach politicians,” Aliyu said.

“For principles of integrity, morality, we have chosen to remain in PDP. I heard people insinuating that I have dumped my party candidate for the APC candidate. It is a lie, I will never do such a thing,” he added.

Aliyu’s sentiment has also been mirrored by Senate President, David Mark who said that he wouldn’t leave the PDP even if he was the last man standing.

The PDP has witnessed a mass defection of its members since President Goodluck Jonathan lost the March 28 elections to APC candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.
