The Deputy National Chairman (North) of the PDP, Senator Babayo Gamawa, has announced his defection to the ruling to the All Progressives Congress, APC, just 24 hours after he was suspended from the party,
Gamawa was suspended by the opposition party for ”dereliction of duty and anti-party activities”.
Upon his suspension, Gamawa paid a visit to President Buhari in the state house Abuja and afterwards, announced his defection to the party.
According to him, his defection is for him to be able to align himself with the developmental efforts of President Buhari.
While berating his former party for failing to avail him a fair hearing, Gamawa described his suspension as an action the PDP would live to regret.
Mr Babawo’s defection to APC was announced Tuesday by the spokesperson of President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina.
Mr Adesina posted pictures of Mr Gamawa and the governor of Bauchi state, Mohammed Abubakar, when they visited the president at his official residence.
”President Buhari receives in audience New Entrant into APC Former Deputy National Chairman of PDP Senator Babayo Garba Gamawa and Hon. Kaulaha Aliyu alongside Bauchi State Governor in State House on 8th Jan 2019,” Mr Adesina posted on his Facebook page.
