A former governor of Adamawa State, Bala Ngillari, has revealed why he dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking on the reason for his defection, the former governor said the PDP has no future in Nigeria, adding that the party is already dying.

Ngillari stated this at the state APC stakeholders meeting on Saturday, January 9, in Yola, the Adamawa State capital.
The ex-governor who defected to the APC in 2020, was the PDP’s Adamawa north senatorial candidate at the 2019 general election.
He said: “One of the reasons why I dumped PDP for APC is that PDP is a dying party. In fact, PDP is dead and it will be buried in 2023.
“Secondly, I don’t see PDP as an alternative for the future of Nigeria, because the contradictions in the party will make its members go to the graveyard and we will help them bury themselves.
“And the reason why I identified myself with APC is because of its laudable objectives that will take us to the promised land and give hope to our future generations.”
The ex-governor added that any nationalist who wanted the country to move to the next level, should join the APC as it has no alternative at present, adding that there was hope for Nigeria and its citizens under the APC-led federal government, urging progressive politicians across the country to rally round the party.
Ngillari also emphasised that the APC currently has 90% followership in Adamawa, assuring that the party would take over the state in 2023.
“I wish those who chose to remain in PDP well. Adamawa has abundant natural resources if properly harnessed, the resources would boost the economy of the state and the country at large,” he declared.
