No fewer than 15 All Progressives Congress (APC) stalwarts in Gombe Province have defected to the Peoples Democratic Political party (PDP) amongst their supporters.
Speaking to thousands of PDP supporters in Gombe on Saturday, former Deputy Governor, John Yoriyo, who defected to PDP, said he wasn’t impressed with the happenings in the APC.
“It’s obvious that the APC has failed in Nigeria, particularly in the area of security,” he said.
The Word Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Yoriyo was a deputy governor under former governor Danjuma Goje, at present a senator representing Gombe central.
He said the PDP remains the best political political party ever, when compared to what is obtainable in the APC.
He said, “I was in the APC and I have seen everything that is happening, nil encouraging. PDP is the best location to be.
“There was nil similar democracy under APC in Gombe. Nobody knows what is happening, we were ignorant, we are just beingness ruled,” he explained.
Maj.-Gen. Abnor Kwaskebe (Retired), Chairman PDP, said 15 of the political party stalwarts who defected to APC prior to the 2015 elections have returned home.
“We are glad to get those that left the political party, thinking that the PDP had collapsed. They are at present coming dorsum home.”
