Former Chairman of Kirfi local government of Bauchi state Alhaji Bappa Danmalikin Bara has decamped from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) .
The one time chairman revealed this to journalists in Bauchi saying that his decision to dump the PDP was due to alleged unfair treatment meted out to him by Governor Bala Mohammed who suspended him when he was caretaker chairman for 10 months without fair hearing.
Alhaji Bara said, “I was one of the active supporters of PDP during the 2019 electioneering campaign during which I contributed my time, energy and experience in promoting the political ideals but at the end I was treated unfairly”.
According to him, “looking at the political trend in the country and after due consultations with my people and other political associates, I decided to decamp from my party PDP to APC as from 17th November, 2020.
“I also wish to use this medium to thank my political supporters and other associates for their understanding, patience and cooperation throughout the hard time we had together”.
He said that the decision to defect to APC was not to sabotage anyone but to protect the interest of his supporters and his political career in the state.
