An erstwhile governorship aspirant on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bauchi State, Mahmud Maijama’a, has said he defected to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the best interest of the state.

Some loyalists of Maijama’a had, on Monday, declared their support for the APC governorship candidate, Abubakar Sadique, a former Chief of Air Staff (CAS).

On why Maijama’a dumped APC, his Director of Media, Danlami Takko, said: “At a meeting in the first week of November at Mahmud Maijama’a’s residence, the Dallatun Bauchi made his intention known that he would defect from the APC to PDP. Majority of the Steering Committee members agreed to defect along with him to PDP, while a few others decided to remain in APC.

“The decision by Maijama’a and majority of the Steering Committee members to defect to PDP was taken in the overall interest of Bauchi State.”
