DAILY NIGERIAN exclusively gathered that the governor, in a private outing without motorcade, visited the Railway Quarters residence of Mr Garo to persuade him to remain in the APC.

A source familiar with the visit said Mr Ganduje was the first to arrive at the residence before Mr Jibrin joined him.

In protest over the decision, as well as the governor’s alleged failure to manage mass defections in the party, Mr Garo boycotted functions within and outside the Government House, leaving the flag-bearer, Nasir Gawuna, politically desolate.

Sources said the powerful former commissioner for Local Government may defect to PDP to work for his father in-law, Atiku Abubakar’s presidential bid.

The party in the state is in dire straits, with gale of defection fast eroding its electoral chances.
