Dukku attributed their decision to good and purpose-driven leadership style of Gov. Inuwa Yahaya.

Also speaking, Alhaji Bappah Maru, a former member of the PDP Elders’ Forum said the efforts of the present administration in the state in the provision of potable water in the area convinced him to join the APC.

Umaru said their decision to join the APC was to appreciate the governor’s people-oriented policies towards improving the well being of the people.

Welcoming the new members, Gov. Inuwa Yahaya said the APC-led state government had entrenched good governance.

Represented by the Commissioner for Finance and Economic Development, Alhaji Muhammad Magaji, Yahaya said the large number of people joining APC showed there was no hope for the opposition parties in the state in 2023.

With the calibre of defectors received in Dukku LGA, the APC in Gombe had been further fortified and this means that our chances in 2023 are getting brighter,” the governor added.

The Vice Chairman of APC in Dukku LGA, Alhaji Yahya Kole, lauded Yahaya for delivering on his mandate to transform the state.

He said: ”This is why APC has become a party that everyone wants to join and we will keep receiving new members.”
