The Secretary of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), North-East zone, Dr Babayo Liman alongside hundreds of supporters, have dumped the party for the PDP in Gombe State.
Liman, who is also a member of the Rabiu Kwankwaso Presidential Campaign Council, announced this at a news conference on Saturday in Gombe.
The Secretary said he resigned from the NNPP and joined the PDP to support its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
“We registered more than 3.6 million people in the North-East region under the NNPP and Gombe is one of the states in my zone.
“Hence the need for me to go around and inform my supporters that I have defected to the PDP.
“I am resigning my appointment as the North-East Zonal Secretary of the NNPP, as a member of the presidential campaign council of the NNPP and as Coordinator of the Kwankwasiya in the zone,” Liman said.

“I want to inform the over 600,000 NNPP members in Gombe State to defect and obtain PDP membership cards.”
He then urged Kwamkwaso to withdraw from the race and support the candidature of Atiku Abubakar.
“Atiku Abubakar has the capacity to salvage the country from its present hardship and dwindling economy,” he said.
Liman described the 16 years of PDP administration as a success in view of the tremendous achievements recorded in the country.
