PDP Chairman gives reason for dumping party
Announcing his defection, Danlami said, “I and my followers decided to dump PDP and join APC because of the pragmatic leadership style of the APC-led administration of Governor Abdullahi Sule, and the State Assembly Speaker, Balarabe Abdullahi.
“I am calling on my supporters and people of the area to give the present administration all the needed support to succeed,” he said.
This coming after a former state lawmaker, Madaki Ada-Goje and former administrator of Gadabuke Development Area, Benjamin Belodu also dumped PDP for APC.
