Some former members of the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party in Kaltungo Local Government Area of Gombe State on Sunday defected to the New Nigeria Peoples Party.
Receiving the defectors, the governorship candidate of the party in the state, Khamisu Mailantarki, alongside other party chieftains, congratulated the new members for finding refuge in the NNPP.
According to Mailantarki, their coming into the party at this period was a great success, as he assured them that they would be carried along in all his political activities.
He said both the PDP and the APC had been opportune to rule the state in the past years, alleging, however, that they had not performed according to the people’s expectations.
Mailantarki disclosed that the NNPP would provide a better alternative in the next year’s election, as he asked the new defectors to mobilise people widely in their places.
Mailantarki said, “Glory be to God for the successes being recorded by the NNPP every day. This is as a result of the good manifestos of the party. That is why more people are trooping to join. Together, we can do it and have a new Gombe State come 2023.”
Our correspondent reports that some of the party chieftains that attended the event include; the party’s Gombe South senatorial candidate, Abigail Albashi, deputy governorship candidate Hamma Tanimu and state party chairman Maikano Abdullahi, among others.
