Rebel Governors who defected from Nigeria's Ruling Party -People's Democratic Party(PDP) merged their splinter group with the main opposition party -All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday Nov 26,2013 eroding the power base President Goodluck Jonathan would need for re-election

Seven governors from Jonathan's party have defected, the most explicit internal threat to his assumed plan to run in elections in early 2015. However, some were due to leave office or represented states that Jonathan was unlikely to win
