As the 2019 general elections approach, a Deputy Speaker who worked for the victory of APC in 2015 has denounced the ruling party in Nigeria, and has since joined the opposition pdp party in Nasarawa state.
PoliticsNGR gathered that Rt. Hon. Barr. Bala Rabo Ayaga, Deputy Speaker, Nasarawa State House Assembly defected to PDP with his large number of supporters. He claims that the APC was no longer a party that could lead Nigeria and Nigerians to the promise land. He added that the APC as a party they had tirelessly supported and worked for, performed far below their expectations.
Hon. Ayaga also made it known that, PDP of yesterday was ‘better than APC of today, adding that the PDP of today is more organised and well grounded to take over the leadership of the nation since APC has woefully failed’ .For these reasons and so many reasons that time could not permit them to speak out at the time they were been received, have prompted them to return to PDP the rightful place they belong to.
Among the key personalities who joined him to denounce APC were Hon. Labi Osugebo, former deputy chairman Kokona LGA, Alh. Kanko Madage Bayero, Alh. Dauda Odumagbe, Hon. Musa Inaloko, a one time commissioner with the Nasarawa State Government, Alh. Suleiman Wabai, an APC House of Assembly aspirant.
Others were, Hon. Akajo A. Gyara, Hon. Alh. Usman Isa, Alh. Dauda Osaga, former DPM Agwada Development Area, and over five thousand of their supporters from APC from Agwada Development Area.
Hon. Prince Francis Enokela Orogu, the state PDP Chairman who received them, gave them the assurance on behalf of the entire PDP family in Nigeria, that they have been accepted as members. He equally guaranteed them of working together to the success of the party in the forthcoming general elections.
