Not to be left out of the current wave of change blowing across the political climate of the country, some high profile PDP members including former Senate Majority Leader, Jonathan Zwingina and former Minister of External Affairs, Idi Hong, on Wednesday decamped to the APC.
Serving Senators, Bello Tukur and Ahmed Barata, as well as Sadiq Haske, a chieftain of the PDP, were also among those who decamped today. They announced their defection at a press conference in Yola the capital of Adamawa state on Wednesday.
Speaking on behalf of the defectors, Mr. Zwingina said they decided to pitch their tent with the APC to support the party’s governorship candidate, Bindow Jibrilla.
“We are positive of the change going on now in the country; we believe in the candidacy of Bindow,” he said.
All defectors were part of a group that earlier today met with the president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, who was in Yola to campaign for the APC.
