Why I switched from PDP to NNPP –Abba Yusuf Gida Gida.
Abba Yusuf, the PDP’s governorship candidate for 2019, and his running mate, Aminu Abdulsalam, have defected to the New Nigeria Peoples Party.
Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano State, is Yusuf’s son-in-law.
Yusuf, who announced his defection to the NNPP at a rally in Diso ward, Gwale LGA, said the PDP had failed his supporters.
He claims that there is no difference between the PDP and the APC, and that his decision to abandon the opposition party was motivated by “the yearning of my throngs of supporters.”
“Today, God has once again joined us in this Kwankwasiyya house at Diso ward in His infinite mercy,” he said. We gathered here in 2018 to officially announce our departure from the APC and join the PDP. It was because of injustice that we left the APC at the time. They took the wrong turn and ended up in the wrong lane.
“We decided we couldn’t go along with them when they started doing unholy things, so we defected to the PDP.” We thought there was a distinction between the APC and the PDP at the time. We discovered that they are all birds of the same feather after traveling a long distance. The reasons for our defection from the APC are the same reasons we ended up in the PDP.
“The PDP has done a lot of things that are unfavorable, particularly at the national headquarters.” We believed they would treat us fairly, particularly our leader, Kwankwaso.
“We expected the PDP to show love to Kano state residents who voted for the party in large numbers in 2019.” However, what it does in return is work against leaders. We discovered that whoever has the people’s best interests at heart is disliked by the party.” Ready More
