Why PDP Dep Chairman joined APC-Zainabari

Bauchi State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to the recent defection of the party’s Deputy National Chairman Senator Babayo Garba Gamawa to the All Progressives Congress (APC) alleging that he joined the ruling party for fear of persecution and intimidation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Speaking with Blueprint, State Publicity Secretary of the PDP Alhaji Yaya nuwa Zainabari said the APC led federal government uses anti graft agencies to scare members of the opposition thereby forcing them to join their party for safety.

” Senator Babayo Garba defected for his personal interest, it was not in the best interest of the nation or Bauchi state. He was suspended by the party over abscondment from his office for over six months, as PDP national chairman “.

” Moreso, he was once a deputy governor (in Bauchi State) and this APC government is fond of intimating people who held power even as local government chairman. That will compel you to defect to that party because they turned EFCC into their hunting dog. This is one of the reasons for his decision I think”. He opined.

Aside that, Zainabari also opined that Gamawa being one time speaker of the state assembly, deputy governor and senator was not contented with what he gains in his recent position as deputy party chairman, hence his decision to quit the party.
