Members of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in Adamawa have said that they did not defect with Alhaji Buba Marwa to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The former state chairman of the defunct party, Alhaji Ibrahim Waziri, stated this yesterday in Yola at a meeting of former members of the party in the 21 local government areas of the state.
Marwa, who was the party’s gubernatorial candidate in the state, had on Sunday declared his defection to the PDP over claims of marginalisation of his people by the ruling APC in the state.
Waziri claimed that Marwa joined the CPC, and had defected to the PDP they way he came.
Another stakeholder, Alhaji Suleiman Abdullahi, said the members wished Marwa well, but were concerned about his claims that members of the defunct CPC defected with him to the PDP.
“We would not have bothered to meet to disassociate ourselves from Marwa if not for his claims that members of the defunct CPC defected along with him,’’ he said. (NAN)
