The exit of People’s Democratic Party, PDP, former national chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, deputy national chairman North, Alhaji Babayo Garba Gamawa, to the All Progressives Congress, APC has been confirmed by the Bauchi state chapter of the PDP.
Others who are said to have towed Maazu way are a former secretary to the federal government, Alhaji Ahmed Yayale, and Alhaji Kaulaha Aliyu.
This was disclosed to Newsmen by the Bauchi PDP publicity secretary, Yayanuwa Zainabari, in an exclusive interview in Bauchi Wednesday
He described the exit of the PDP bigwigs to APC in Bauchi as shocking and a big slap to the party ahead of the 2019 polls.
“Honestly, we have confirmed the exits of former national chairman, deputy national chairman and other two. It’s a big shock to the PDP. However, the party remains strong to sweep the election owing to APC’s failures,” Zainabari said.
The PDP publicity secretary alleged that the defectors took the decision to dump the party to escape the wrath of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and apparently to pacify the ruling party.
He disclosed that the deputy national chairman north was suspended for his inability to work for the PDP and anti-party activities.
Zainabari however maintained that their defection will not stop PDP from winning the polls, insisting that Nigerians will not allow further rigging in the forthcoming general elections.
He maintained that PDP’s governorship candidate, Mohammed Bala remains unshakeable because of his popularity and public acceptance.
“Among the governorship candidates in Bauchi state, only Bala is giving the APC sleepless night and that may have informed the gang up against PDP,” Zainabari said
