- Baba Ahmed says he dumps PDP because party is indiscipline
- Says PDP is dead in Borno
In what could be described as a political flood, opposition Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in Borno members on the path of extinct in the North East State as PDP secretary and 12 other party chairman across 12 LGAs have all defected to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
The latest political disaster that hit Borno PDP came barely 24 hours to governorship and house of assembly elections.
Others who defected to APC alongside the state Party secretary, Baba Ahmed Mustapha , are some of the various youths leaders, woman leader among others.
Addressing newsmen at the APC state secretariat Maiduguri, the PDP former Secretary, Mustapha said he defected from the party because of injustice and indiscipline.
Mustapha who said he defected since Thursday the 7th of March added that his continuous stay in the party despite the injustices will amount to doing injustice to his supporters.
He said:” I defected to APC because of injustice and deceit in Borno PDP. 24hours to the election, you cannot feel the presence of PDP with no campaign even days before the election.
PDP has a flag bearer , but he has since remained mute without campaigning , which means a deciet on the people. It really means that the candidate is deceiving people.
”The result of my defection with others will be reflected in the ballot box tomorrow. I call on other members of PDP to come and join progressives to move Borno to the next level,” Baba Ahmed Mustapha, the decampee said.
Borno isn’t the only state where this happened, similar massive defections had been seen in Kaduna, Kwara State, the political home base of the incumbent Senate President Bukola Saraki who had already been defeated during the first phase of 2019 general elections.
