No fewer than six APC campaign coordinators have defected to the PDP, Ejesgist News reports.
Six campaign coordinators from the Bauchi State All Progressives Congress (APC) Gubernatorial Campaign Council have defected to the Peoples Democratic Party ahead of next month’s governorship election.
The departure has left a void in the camp of retired Air Marshal Sadique Baba Abubakar at a time when Bauchi governorship aspirants have ramped up their attempts to win over voters.
The chairman of the coordinators, Comrade Nasiru Khalid, disclosed the decision to dump the party at the Banquet Hall, Government House, Bauchi.
He said the progressive blueprint of the PDP led administration in Bauchi lured them to the party, adding that they will contribute immensely to the victory of the party in the state.
Khalid said their unanimous decision to defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) followed due consultation with their followers at the grassroots.
He said the delegation will continue to mobilise and canvass votes for candidates under the platform of the PDP considering the party’s blueprint which according to him will be beneficial to citizenry.
Earlier, Bauchi State governor Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed said his administration has improved the living standard of citizens through massive empowerment despite the economic challenges, saying more dividends of democracy will be delivered if reelected.
