Peter Obi’s Campaign Director Defects To PDP Over ‘Lack Of Structure’ In Bauchi
Alhassan Bawu, the Bauchi State campaign director of the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Speaking on Tuesday at a media briefing in Bauchi, Bawu said his defection was due to the lack of structure of the LP at the state, local, and ward levels.
According to him, all the LP chairpersons in the state, zonal officers as well as national officers from the zone have also defected to support the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
He said, “The LP is not strong and won’t be able to win a single seat in the region.
“We are officially declaring that all the north-east executives of Labour Party are defecting to PDP to support Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
“We don’t want to waste our votes, and we want to use this time to mobilise votes to who has the capacity to win the election.”
Bawu said the decampees prefer the PDP to other political parties because they believe in Abubakar’s capacity to lead.
“If we support Atiku, we know that our votes will help him in becoming the president of this country,” he added.
