One of the defeated aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the just concluded governorship primary in Gombe, Jamilu Isiaku Gwamna, has led thousands of his supporters to the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC secretariat.
Reacting to the outcome of the primary election where he was defeated along with 11 others by Senator Usman Bayero Nafada, Jamilu Isikaku Gwamna described the outcome as a daylight robbery on democracy in the state.
Jamilu Gwamna termed the exercise a charade, adding that the voting was carried out by delinquents and not delegates and vowed that he and his supporters will henceforth work for the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari’s return in the 2019 general elections.
He told reporters, “Having considered the situation and in consultation with our people, I felt our interest will not be protected in PDP and so we sought for an alternative which is APC.
“I am not seeking this position just for myself, but the people called on me to do so and I accepted the call.
“Our interest now can only be protected in the APC and we’ll assiduously work for the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari and Mohammed Inuwa Yahaya to become the Governor of Gombe State,” he declared.
