… We are not perturbed says PDP

The race for who becomes what in the 2023 elections seems to be getting more interesting as politicians especially in the North who have hitherto left the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party(PDP,) have started returning to their vomit.
Just few months after,former speaker Yakubu Dogara left the ODP to return to APC,another PDP decampee has returned to APC in Bauchi.
Senator Isa Hamma Misau, a political supporter of former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has followed his associate and benefactor back to APC .

Misau, who represented Bauchi Central Senatorial District in the 8th Assembly, announced his defection back to APC during a meeting with the APC Caretaker Chairman, MaiMala Buni, at the Yobe Governor’s Lodge in Abuja on Friday.

But in a swift reaction, the Bauchi State PDP said it was not perturbed by the Senator’s defection.

The State Chairman of the PDP, Hamza Akuyam, described the defection as “good radiance to bad rubbish”.

He said, “He (Misau) came alone into the PDP in 2019 when he was denied ticket to contest, he could not win even in his polling unit; if he is going, bye-bye to him”.

Akuyam, who described the situation as very unfortunate, said, “You know he has a lot of issues hanging on his neck to settle with the federal government.

“As he and others are going, many others are coming in to replace them. We are not afraid of anything come 2023. It is a river and when we get to the bank, we will create a bridge with which to cross the river.”
