The Bauchi State PDP has confirmed the exits of Deputy National Chairman(North) of the party, Babayo Gamawa and former National Chairman, Adamu Mu’azu.
Both party chieftains recently defected to the APC from the PDP.
Others who defected were Aliyu Kaulaha and Ahmed Yayale.
The PDP said the defectors moved to escape EFCC’s clampdown in an interview with Daily Post.
“Honestly, we have confirmed the exits of former national chairman, deputy national chairman and other two. It’s a big shock to the PDP. However, the party remains strong to sweep the election owing to APC’s failures,” Zainabari Yayanuwa, the PDP’s Publicity Secretary in Bauchi State said.
He also added that the move was borne out of the fast popularity gained by the PDP candidate in Bauchi State, Mohammed Bala.
“Among the governorship candidates in Bauchi state, only Bala is giving the APC sleepless night and that may have informed the gang up against PDP,” Zainabari said.
