Bauchi APC aspirants deny defection rumour

Two senatorial aspirants of the APC in Bauchi State, yesterday, denied that they have plans to dump the party.

The aspirants, in a joint statement signed by Dr. Danjuma Adamu Dabo, who contested for Bauchi South senatorial ticket and Dr. Muhammad Dogo Waziri, who contested for Bauchi North senatorial ticket, described the speculation as a rumour.

“We unequivocally reaffirm that APC is our home and as founding members who have been in this long-haul struggle with PMB, we decided that no amount of denial or deprivation will make us leave the discomfort of our party to go elsewhere,” they said.

While acknowledging that they had been approached by some political parties to pick their tickets, the aspirants said they consulted their supporters and agreed to remain in APC.

“We also reiterate our belief in the capacity and capabilities of President Muhammadu Buhari to take Nigeria to a greater height as evidenced by the giant successes his government has recorded so far,” they said.
