APC queries chieftain for attending PDP rally A governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Mohammed Abba-Aji, has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over what he called the imposition of indirect primaries on the party in the state.

This Day reports that Abba-Aji is now contesting the Borno central senatorial seat on the platform of the PDP. The politician said the the internal problems bedeviling the APC in the state prompted his decision to leave the party.

Abba-Aji said the governors of the APC have become so powerful to the extent of making the state party chairmen to do their bidding. He faulted the adoption of indirect primaries by Borno state chapter of the party, saying it was contrary to the resolution of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the APC.

“What the governors are doing showed fear and distrust to people who have sticked out their necks to become members of APC . Stakeholders held meeting without the presence of any governorship aspirant, which is an injustice," Abba-Aji said.

“My coming out to represent my people again at the National Assembly is to consolidate on what I had achieved while I was there , and by the grace of God, I am the candidate to beat. Whoever APC presents for the Borno Central senatorial race will suffer defeat from me. I will defeat their candidate because of my long term experience in the legislative business."
