Defection: Former Comissioner, Special Adviser, Others Join  APC In Gombe State

A former Commissioner, Barr. Babagoro Hashidu and Former Special Adviser, Alh. Maigari Malala who both served under the PDP-led Government of Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo as well as a prominent PDP elder in Kwami Local Government Area,  Alhaji Kari Daba have defected from the People’s Democratic Party, the opposition party in Gombe State to the rulling All Progressives Congress,  APC.

The three influencial politicians visited Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya where they paid their allegiance and registered  their solidarity.

Hon. Hashidu explained that his decision to join the APC was informed by numerous achievements recorded by the APC-led Administration in less than three years under the able leadership of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya.

“When we left government in 2019, many of us were anticipating a failed state. But fortunately the people of Gombe State got a super governor under whose leadership Gombe triumphed beyond expection.

“We are all witnesses  of unprecedented projects under Governor Inuwa Yahaya; the Muhammadu Buhari Industrial Park,  Gombe Capital Special Development Zone Project, Network 11-100, Total overhaul of Health Sector and many more. These are what captured my attention to join the APC”, he added.

On his part, the Former Adviser, Hon. Maigari said politics are meant to bring development and that is what they see Governor Inuwa doing. “Therefore, we cannot compromise the future of our state for the selfish interest of few”, he said.

The defectors assured continued support of all policies and programmes of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya-led government and the APC for the uplitment of Gombe State.

They called on their former party members and all well-meaning  citizens of Gombe State to support the people-oriented APC government for the growth and development of the state.

The defectors were led by an APC stalwart in Gombe North, Alh. Sani Jamari (Baraden Jamari)

Habu Shinga, a former Head of Housing/ Acting Director, Housing, Special Assistant during Goje regime, Caretaker Chairman Yamaltu Deba LGA (three times), full time member 1 SUBEB (three times), Talba Campaign Co-ordinator, Yamaltu-Deba LGA 2015 and former contestant, State House of Assembly under PDP.
