Representatives and state Assembly along with over 3,400 supporters who defected to the APC in Bodinga local government area of the state.
Wamakko received the defectors at the party’s gubernatorial campaign. “Don’t be provoked by what your former members of the party will say to you because the APC is a party needed at this time to ensure good democratic governance”.
He said that no amount of intimidation will deter the progressives from clamoring for political change needed at this time.
He said that the APC led administration will operate a responsible administration that would ensure the availability of basic infrastructures that will improve on the well being of the people.
He said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will meet the expectations of Nigerian by addressing their yearning and aspirations through good democratic governance.
The governor also called on the defectors to feel at home as,”there is no new members and old members in the party.”
Wamakko tasked the APC candidates in Bodinga to work hand in hand with the defectors for massive grass roots’ mobilization. “You must carry along people in ensuring total victory of our candidates seeking elective offices,” he said.
Speaking earlier, Alhaji Tsoho Dan Galadima had informed the gathering that the APC represented the change Nigerians were clamouring for.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives and APC gubernatorial candidate in the state, Aminu Tambuwal tasked the members of the party to acquire the permanent voter cards.
He called on them to shun all kinds violence before, during and after the conduct of the general elections.
Alhaji Tsoho Dan Galadima had informed the gathering that they left their former party because it lacked focus in meeting the desired political growth the country need at this time.
“We will work with our new party members to ensure total victory of all our candidates,” he concluded.
