Labour Party governorship candidate Dr. Umar Mustapha Muqaddas has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Muqaddas, who announced his defection at a Thursday press conference in Yola, the state capital, urged his supporters to vote for the APC on Saturday.
Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), while Peter Obi represents Muqaddas’ former party.
Muqaddas stated that he had dismantled the Adamawa structure of his Labour Party and that his new party would benefit.
He stated that his supporters joined the LP with the belief that it will provide the progressive, honest, inclusive, and visionary alternative that Nigerian politics requires.
He remarked that he and his supporters were dissatisfied because the leadership of the LP was just as bad as the system they were attempting to alter.
He lamented that despite their efforts and good intentions, they realized that the structure established by the Peter Obi presidential campaign organization would lead them nowhere at the national and state levels.
“I have been completely sidelined, ignored, and disrespected by LP structure at both the national and state levels, and the same holds true for other LP candidates,” he said.
