Meanwhile, member representing Ganye Constituency in the Adamawa State House of Assembly, Alhassan Hammanjoda, has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The former All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain announced his defection to the umbrella camp in a letter he signed and presented on the floor of the house during Wednesday’s plenary, Naija News reports.
Hammanjoda explained in the letter read by the speaker of the house, Aminu Iya Abbas, that his defection followed consultation, self-conviction and the backing of his supporters.
The lawmaker noted that the incumbent administration of Governor Ahmadu Fintiri is providing exemplary leadership in Adamawa State, a development he supports.
Alhassan, who bid farewell to his former party, thanked them for their support and the opportunity given to him to serve the people of his constituency for eight years.
