PDP Campaign DG Decamps To APC 14 Days To Presidential Election

Bala Bello Tinka, the Director General of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign organisation in Gombe state, has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party.

Naija News understands that the development was made known in a statement by the Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity), Femi Adesina.

Adesina said in the statement that Tink who is popularly referred to as Tinka Point met with President Muhammadu Buhari at State House in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital on Thursday night.

The statement said Tinka pledged allegiance to the APC and also vowed to bring his political weight to bear on the election of the President for a second term in office.

According to Adesina, the development is “coming exactly a fortnight to the presidential election, the defection of Alhaji Tinka deals a massive blow to the PDP in Gombe. PDP currently governs the state and has done so since 2003.

“President Muhammadu Buhari campaigns in Gombe Saturday and Alhaji Tinka is expected to formally join the APC, alongside others, during the event,” Adesina added.
