The Labour Party (LP) has suffered a great setback in Jigawa state as its party structure collapsed after the gubernatorial candidate, Comrade Tsoho Garba, all Senatorial, Representatives, and State House of Assembly candidates decamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

Also, the state LP Chairman and virtually all other party executives across the 27 local government areas of the state have joined the mass exodus to APC.

Speaking to journalists at around zero hours today, Saturday, Comrade Tsoho Garba said they decided to drop their candidate and their party for APC in appreciation of the giant stride of Governor Badaru Abubakar in the state.

“People requested for us to contest under Labor Party, but in the cause of our campaign tour across the state, we all got to know how APC government transformed the state through projects and programs that have direct bearing with the common man

“If we are contesting for the sake of the progress of our state, it is no doubt what Jigawa needed is continuity and the best thing is to allow APC to continue driving the force in order not to deviate from the main track.

“So from today, all of us along with our political allies have joined APC  and we vowed to work for its success at the national and state level in the next coming general election”

Similarly, a People Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for State Assembly, Kaugama constituency, Hon. Abubakar Market has also dropped his candidature and joined APC.

In his comments after receiving the decamped members, Governor Badaru expressed his happiness and promised to hand them over to APC presidential candidate, Mr. Bola Tinubu as a welcome gift.

“For those who predicted that in two weeks’ time, APC will collapse in Jigawa, now the party appeared to be stronger and stronger receiving candidates, Executives, and members of PDP, LP, and other political parties in the state.

“This is enough answer to the civilian dictator and their unscrupulous political liability man,” Badaru declared.
