Dankwambo left PDP with 2000 members for APC

Dankwambo left PDP with 2000 members for APC. Ahead of 2019 general elections, 2000 members of the People Democratic Party in Gombe State have defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress APC in the State.

Amongst those that defected was Buhari Dankwambo, the younger brother of the incumbent governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo

According to reports, the younger Dankwambo’s defection came after the failed efforts of his brother and some political bigwigs to convince to remain in remain in the PDP. He was persuaded and even given juicy offers to stay but he rejected them.

A source close to the state government said efforts to stop Dankwambo from moving to APC was not because of his political relevance but because it will be embarrassing for the blood brother of a sitting governor who is aspiring to be the president of Nigeria to decamped to an opposition party.
