We want to be part of gov. Gaidam's success, says Yobe PDP leaders, as they decamp to APCThe Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in their large numbers have dumped the party and move on to join the All Progressives Congress (APC), saying they are impressed about the government achievement and want to be part of it.

In a ceremony to mark their acceptance into the party in Damaturu, the state capital, the decampees cited the progress being made by the state governor, Ibrahim Gaidam in roads development, healthcare, education, and other areas, as their reasons for dumping the PDP.

A former Federal Minister and a PDP leader, Jibir Maigari, said, “The achievements of Gov. Gaidam are enormous and we want to be part of his genuine effort to move our state forward.

“Look at the chain of roads we now have in the state. Anyone who knew what it used to be to drive from Gashu’a to Yusufari or from Nguru to Machina would appreciate the roads that Governor Gaidam has built in those areas.

“It wasn’t easy or fun to drive in those sandy terrains but thanks to the governor, things have now changed for the better.

“The establishment of a Teaching Hospital in Damaturu is also another success story we want to be part of”

Also a stalwart of the PDP, and former Commissioner for Housing in the state, Mohammed Saleh, said, “We have no reason to be in opposition. Our interest is the progress of our state. Governor Gaidam is championing that progress.

“It’s always a thing of joy and pride to us that the stands out in terms of regular payment of salaries, gratuities, and pensions.

“He is doing remarkably well in education and healthcare. Therefore, we join him to deliver more to the people.

However, receiving the former PDP leaders into the APC, Governor Gaidam described the large turnout of people at the event as a ‘clear indication’ that the APC is ‘waxing stronger’ in the state, saying that the policies, programmes and manifesto of the party and its performance at the state and federal level, “has endeared our party to the hearts of many people.”

According to him, the decision of the Yobe PDP leaders to decamp to the APC is a wise one, “a homecoming and a journey to where they rightly belong.”

He added, “Let the whole world note that those formally decamping or returning home today are all high-profile individuals and politicians made of a former minister, former members of national and state houses of assembly, former acting chairman of the PDP in Kano State, former commissioners and a retired permanent secretary.

“There are also former local government chairmen and party executives at state and federal levels and others too numerous to mention.

“I assure them that we shall continue to recognise and accord them all the rights and privileges that are being enjoyed by other APC supporters in the state.

“Let’s collectively work to convince the rest of your supporters who are still sitting on the fence to come join us too. As our brothers, we need them. Yobe is the home of APC and all false suitors have no place here.”We want to be part of gov. Gaidam's success, says Yobe PDP leaders, as they decamp to APC
