The Campaign Director of the Labour Party, LP in Bauchi, Alhaji Alhassan Bawu has dumped the party for the, Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP.
Bawu defected to the PDP alongside other officials of the party in the Northeast state, saying the party’s lack of structure at state, local, and ward levels has discouraged them from continuing with the party.
He said, “The LP is not strong and won’t be able to win a single seat in the region.”
He added, “We don’t want to waste our votes and we want to use this time to mobilize votes to who can win the election.”
The campaign director said the defectors preferred the PDP above other political parties because they believe that the party and its presidential candidate can handle the country.
He said all the chairmen of the party, state and zonal officers, as well as national officers from the zone, have also defected to support the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
