A founding member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who was appointed Interim Management Committee chairman of Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna state by governor Nasir el-Rufai has decamped to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Isah Dansallah who officially decamped to the PDP on Saturday, has also called on his godfathers, former vice president Atiku Abubakar and Hon Isa Ashiru Kudan to join him.
Dansallah was officially received by his ward chairman in the PDP and the state party officials in Afogo ward.
DanSallah said he will work tirelessly towards redeeming the image of the PDP.
“I want to specially call on my bosses Alhaji Atiku and Isa Ashiru to return back to the best party in Africa which they are founding members. Atiku’s coming back to the party will further alleviate the sufferings of Nigerians which the APC government has succeeded in afflicting them with,” he said.
According to him, ” Atiku’s political structures and presence cut across the six geo-political zones and internationally unlike other politicians whose structures are just within their domains.”
“Atiku is the highest employer of labour as an individual in Nigeria. He has the political will, experience and financial strength to develop Nigeria,” Dansallah said.
While commenting, the state party secretary, Alhaji Aliyu Wusono said, ” congratulations Hon. DanSallah for seeing the light. Your return to the party is timely and very soon, more are decamping to PDP.”
In their submissions, the local government party chairman, Hon. Yohanna Barde and the Ward Chairman, Afogo Ward Hon. Amos Galadima said they are happy that. Hon. DanSallah has decamped to their party.
“Since he came to my house and disclosed his intention, I ceased to be hungry. We know his capability. On our own side, we will give him all the necessary support to ensure we clinch power from our ward level to the state.”
