Alhassan Bawu, the Campaign Director of the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi in Bauchi State, has left the party ahead of the forthcoming presidential election.
According to news reports, Bawu left the LP for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Bawu, who defected to the PDP along with other party officials in the Northeast, blamed the decision on a lack of LP structure at the State, local, and ward levels.
Announcing his defection in Bauchi on Tuesday, he said: “The LP is not strong and won’t be able to win a single seat in the region.’’
“We don’t want to waste our votes and we want to use this time to mobilize votes to who can win the election,” he added.
He said that all party chairman, state and zonal officers, and national officers from the zone had defected to support the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
