Nasarawa governor receives ex-deputy governor into APC

A member of the Board of Trustee (BOT) for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Prof Sam Oyovbaire, has described the reasons put forward for defection to All Progressives Congress (APC), by the three (3) PDP governors as baseless, illogical and untenable to the doctrines of democratic principles, norms and values.

Gov. Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State on Saturday received a former deputy governor, Mr Dameshi Luka, into the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

Sule received Luka during the party’s campaign rally for Chairmanship seat and councillorship positions of Akwanga Local Government Area of the state.

He assured the former deputy governor of equal rights in the party.

The governor, however, urged the deputy governor to use his wealth of experience to add value to the party.

Sule gave assurance of his administration’s readiness to continue to operate an open-door policy and all-inclusive governance for the overall development of the state.

Also speaking, Mr John Mamman, State Chairman, APC Caretaker Committee, lauded the former deputy governor for taking the right decision of joining the party.

He urged Luka to mobilise support for the party ahead of the Oct.6 local government election in the state.

Responding, the former deputy governor said that his defection to the party was to contribute his quota to the development of the party and the state.

He promised to use his experience to add value and mobilise more support for the party.

The former deputy governor urged the people of the state to support Sule to succeed.
