JUST IN: Top Northern Politician Dumps APC For PDP

Adamu Garba Talba, a former Senator from Yobe State South District, has left the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for the main opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Talba said he is exiting the APC due to “injustice” suffered at the recent primary elections.

“I have resolved to defect from the APC to the PDP due to the injustices we experienced in our former party, the APC, together with the people of my Yobe South district and my teeming followers throughout the state”, he declared at the PDP National Secretariat, Wadata Plaza, Wuse Zone 5 Abuja.

“We have to leave the party and rejoin my former political party (PDP) where we feel we would be accommodated and treated fairly because those who are supporting my political ideology were misled and treated unfairly,” he added.

Talba was in office as Senator from 29 May 2007 – May 2011.

As Senator, in September 2008, he advocated for the establishment of a National Desert Commission, to tackle desert encroachment in the northern part of the country.
