Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Gombe State has suffered a setback as the former party gubernatorial Aspirant in 2011 election and strong chieftain, Alhaji Farouk Bamusa weekend joined the All Progressive Congress (APC) with thousands of his supporters.
Bamusa, a founding member of the PDP in the state contested the PDP governorship primaries against incumbent Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, in 2011.
He was registered as APC member at his ward in Kwami Town. Shortly after registering as APC member yesterday, Bamusa said he took the decision to answer the call of his people, who appealed to him to come and give them a purposeful leadership.
He said as a leader in his community, there was no justification for him to remain in PDP while majority of his people were in APC, lamenting that Gombe State, which is being ruled by the PDP has been left far behind in the current trend of tremendous change going on in the country under the APC leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.
