The defection, which came at a time when Bauchi governorship candidates have intensified campaign efforts to woo voters, has created a vacuum in the retired Air Marshal Sadique Baba Abubakar’s camp.

The chairman of the coordinators, Comrade Nasiru Khalid, disclosed the decision to dump the party  at the Banquet Hall, Government House, Bauchi.

He said the progressive blueprint of the PDP led administration in Bauchi lured them to the party, adding that they will contribute immensely to the victory of the party in the state.

Khalid said their unanimous decision to defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) followed due consultation with their followers at the grassroots.

He said the delegation will continue to mobilise and canvass votes for candidates under the platform of the PDP considering the party’s blueprint which according to him will be beneficial to citizenry.

Earlier, Bauchi State governor Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed said his administration has improved the living standard of citizens through massive empowerment despite the economic challenges, saying more dividends of democracy will be delivered if reelected.
