Speaker of the House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara is asking Gombe voters not to vote his former party, the All Progressives Congress, APC during the 2019 elections.

The speaker told the people of Gombe state that it would be a mistake to vote the APC in 2019.

Mr. Dogara who was in Gombe on Monday to attend the distribution of empowerment kits by the member representing Akko federal constituency in the National Assembly Alhaji Samaila Kashere, said “we left APC for PDP because of the hunger and suffering brought to you by the APC government”.

“You can all bear me witness that poverty and hunger is in every state that is under APC. We asked you to vote out PDP in 2015 thinking APC can take us to the promise land, that is why we are asking you to change the change.”

Mr. Dogara who spoke in Hausa language said: "You might not have felt the pains brought by APC government, but we in Bauchi and other APC states know what APC is. If you make the mistake of allowing a tricycle rider to take charge of piloting your flight, you will have yourselves to blame over the outcome."

In his remark, Senator Bayaro Nafada, the Gombe State PDP governorship candidate told the gathering that PDP remains the party to beat in Gombe state and the country.

The empowerment kits distributed by Samaila Kashere, the member representing Akko federal constituency includes; five vehicles, thirty-one motorcycles, fifty sewing machines and fifteen water pumping machines.

In the meantime, both PDP and APC have continued to lose its members. With most of the defectors citing lack of respect and fair play as their main reason of decamping.
