Ahead of the 2019 general elections, the opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) continues to suffer more casualties in the mold of members deserting the party.

A former National Chairman of the party, Adamu Muazu has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Adamu's defection and that of other PDP chieftains in Bauchi State were confirmed by the PDP state Publicity Secretary, Yayanuwa Zainabari.

Aside Adamu, other PDP leaders that defected were Deputy National Chairman North, Babayo Garba Gamawa, a former Secretary to the Federal Government (SGF), Ahmed Yayale, and Kaulaha Aliyu.

Zainabari described the exit of the PDP bigwigs to APC in Bauchi as shocking and a big slap to the party ahead of the 2019 polls.

“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 said.

The PDP Publicity Secretary alleged that the defectors took the decision to dump the party to escape the wrath of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and apparently to pacify the ruling party.

He disclosed that the Deputy National Chairman north was suspended for his inability to work for the PDP and anti-party activities.

Zainabari, however, maintained that their defection will not stop PDP from winning the polls, insisting that Nigerians will not allow further rigging in the forthcoming general elections.

He maintained that PDP’s governorship candidate, Mohammed Bala remains unshakable because of his popularity and public acceptance.

“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.
