Members of Adamawa Executive Council comprising Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Commissioners and Special Advisers have formally defected from Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking after a meeting on Wednesday at the Government House in Yola, the Secretary to the Government, Mr Kobis Thimnu, who spoke on behalf of the state executive council members, said their decision to join the state governor to APC was a collective one.
“We, today, unanimously decided to follow Gov Nyako to APC for good”, Thimnu said.
He said that members of the executive council had confidence in the governor and his ability to deliver as evident in his transformation programmes in the state.
“We shall mobilise for APC across the state. In fact, we have established offices in all the 226 wards in the state to ensure the proper entrenchment of the party in Adamawa”, Thimnu said.
Responding, Gov Murtala Nyako, thanked them for the decision to join him saying that APC represented justice and fairness. (NAN)
