Jonathan’s Former Aide Decamps To APC
The Nigeria political transfer window is still very much open even though the January football window is closed.
Politicians are making last minute switch before the general elections in 2019.
One of such is Ahmed Gulak, a former political adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan.
He said they were “forced to leave PDP” by “impunity and lack of internal democracy”.
“Members of the PDP numbering 42,000 across the 21 local government areas including party executives have today wished to formally dump PDP and join APC officially.
"With this development, we formally bury PDP in Adamawa state,” he said.
“Though we are not like others, who kept decamping when their dreams and ambitions were not met.
“Constitutionally we have the right to leave and join any other party. Former President Obasanjo had earlier left PDP and tore his party membership card.
“So also former Vice President Atiku Abubakar; it could be recalled had first left PDP and joined AC that later metamorphosed to ACN. From ACN, Atiku returned back to PDP that he first left and before you know the former vice president again cross-carpeted to APC and now left to PDP again.
“So everyone has right to change if they feel disenchanted and we have made consultations with our people who asked us to move to APC.
He said the government’s “degrading of Boko Haram terrorists” is enough to justify his defection.
