Ex-APC chair­man­ship as­pi­rant, sup­port­ers de­fect to PDP in Kuje

Daily Trust - - DIGEST - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

A for­mer chair­man­ship as­pi­rant of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) dur­ing the last coun­cil elec­tion in Kuje Area Coun­cil, Al­haji Hassan Bako, has de­fected to the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) on Fri­day.

Bako, who de­fected with 87 of his sup­port­ers, was re­ceived by the PDP Kuje cen­tral ward chair­man, Al­haji Dan­lami Tanko Bawasa.

The chair­man­ship as­pi­rant, who spoke on be­half of his sup­port­ers, said they de­cided to dump the rul­ing party due to lack of in­ter­nal democ­racy.

He al­leged that he had been ne­glected as he was never in­vited to any ex­ec­u­tive or stake­hold­ers meet­ing.

“If you are some­where and you didn’t en­joy that place, what are you sup­posed to do? So it seems to me there is no in­ter­nal democ­racy in APC gov­ern­ment in Kuje so I de­cided to leave with some of my sup­port­ers,” he said.

The Kuje PDP cen­tral ward chair­man, Al­haji Bawasa, while re­ceiv­ing the de­cam­pees, as­sured them that the party would al­ways carry them along in its ac­tiv­i­ties.

Mean­while, the APC chair­man in the area, Godwin Poyi, said the party was un­per­turbed by the de­fec­tion of the chair­man­ship as­pi­rant and his sup­port­ers.

He wished them suc­cess in their new party.
