Ganawa shakes Buhari a while ago in Aso Villa

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday received another set of defectors from the Peoples Democratic Party including the suspended Deputy National Chairman of the party, Mr. Babayo Gamawa, and a member of the party’s Board of Trustees, Kaulaha Aliyu, who defected to All Progressives Congress (APC).

The is coming barely 24 hours after the President received members of various PDP support groups from the North East who defected to the ruling APC.

Speaking to State House correspondents after the meeting with the President, Governor Mohammed Abubakar Abdullahi of Bauchi state expressed delight over the new political development, saying the defectors were in the Presidential Villa to pay political homage and pledge their support to the President.  

Also speaking, Mr. Babayo Gamawa told State House correspondents that his decision to defect to the ruling APC had nothing to do with his suspension from the PDP, but his love for the country.

He said the PDP would regret its action for suspending him from office.

“As a Nigerian, I want what is good for the country; I want good image for my country and I want to see development and progress of the country. And I have been saying it, as a politician, I play my politics not blindly. Whenever thing goes right or wrong I will say it the way it is. As Journalists, you are aware of what PDP did today – just because of an allegation they said they have suspended me.

“I want to call on them to check their secretariat. If they are in politics they should know what is happening on daily basis at the secretariat – what comes in and what goes out. They should check their mails and they will know the position of Sen. Babayo Gamawa before their action of today. I have no regret for defecting from the PDP and they (PDP) would regret their action, by God grace,’’ he said

Also speaking, Mr. Kaulaha Aliyu, said he joined the APC to ensure electoral victory for President Buhari in the forthcoming general elections.
