Mallam Isah Dansallah, an associate of former vice president, Atiku Abubakar and Simon Dogari, ex-speaker of Taraba state House of Assembly, have defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Dansallah, a founding member of the APC, explained that he defected due to what he called lack of good governance by the ruling party.
“I dump the APC to PDP because the opposition PDP is lesser evil compare with the ruling APC,” he told the Leadership.
“There was a time that I found myself in the APC, I worked for it success in 2015, but the APC has metamorphose and turn into a ghost with crisis all over.
“The APC led government has succeeded in subjecting Nigerians to abject poverty and has successfully divided Nigerians along religious and ethnic lines.
“People are dying every day with various sickness because of depression as some people can’t even afford a square meal a day.”
Similarly, in Taraba state, the former speaker and other chieftains of the APC on Sunday defected to the PDP.
Dogari, who defected with about 3000 supporters, told PDP party members at the party’s secretariat in Jalingo that the APC lacked focus.
His words: “We have seen the sense of direction and commitment for progress by the PDP and decided to join the party to enable us contribute our quota for the development of the state.”
