Gombe APC leader defects to PDP

19 September 2014, 20:31

Gombe - Mohammed Buba, the Minority Leader of the Gombe State House of Assembly, has defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Buba, who represents Funakaye North Constituency, announced his defection at a ceremony in Bajoga, Funakaye Local Government Area of the state on Thursday.

Addressing newsmen after receiving the PDP membership card in Bajoga, Buba said that he heeded the call by his supporters to do so.

He also said the achievements of Gov. Ibrahim Dankwambo in the constituency, including construction of township roads, establishment of the College for Legal and Islamic Studies and construction of a model primary school, was another reason for his defection.

According to him, PDP is his party and the reason he went to APC is the challenges faced by the previous administration.
