Northern Youths Leaders Forum (NYLF) says Gov. Bala of has not and will never defect to APC as claimed by the party’s latest entrant, Femi Fani-Kayode

National President of the Forum, Elliot Afiyo made the declaration at a news conference on Friday in Yola.

He said claim by Fani-Kayode during his defection to APC that Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu State) and Gov. Seyi Makinde (Oyo State) were on their way to APC through his influence was also untrue.

He said NYLF was in touch with Gov. and he confirmed that he had never at any time discussed issues of defection with Fani-Kayode.

“We state clearly, without mincing words that Gov. Bala Mohammed has not and will never defect to APC and also, he has never at any time discussed issue of defection with Fani-Kayode.

“Bala Mohammed is a nationalist who always placed national interest above his personal interest.’’

Afiyo also appealed to parties in Adamawa to collapse their structures and support Gov. Ahmadu Fintiri in 2023 for a second tenure.

He said NYLF was highly impressed by the infrastructural development Fintiri executed in Adamawa in only two years.
