Former Bauchi Governor, Yuguda Joins Green Party
A former governor of Bauchi State, Isa Yuguda has joined the Green Party of Nigeria (GPN).
Yuguda joined the GPN with his supporters, including a one-time National Organising Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Umaru Dahiru.
Others who followed Yuguda to his new political abode included a former minister, Habibu Aliyu and his former commissioners and campaign directors across the state.
He said the Jos meeting was held after series of consultations with Yuguda’s supporters in Bauchi and other places across the country.
“The series of consultations across the spectrum of supporters, elders, youths, women and others gave room to what transpired in Jos.
The former commissioner said that Yuguda’s exit from the PDP gave rise to a lot of politicking and realignment with a view to finding a political solution to issues in Nigeria and Bauchi State in particular.
It is not yet clear whether the ex-Bauchi governor will vie for the presidency under his new political party.
Yuguda as member of the PDP had served as Minister of Aviation under former President Olusegun Obasanjo and as governor for two terms also on the platform of the party.
