PDP woos ex-APC chieftain who dumped party over Muslim-Muslim ticket
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members in the House of Representatives have called on the former legal adviser to the Deputy Senate President, Barrister Daniel Bwala, to pitch his tent with the opposition party.
Bwala recently announced his resignation from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) over the party’s Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket.
Speaking during a visit to the former APC chieftain in Abuja, yesterday, the House Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu, said Bwala has shown character and a spirit of true Nigerian for dumping the ruling party.
He said: “I have just heard that in the Senate, they have moved for Mr President’s impeachment. I have just been given the notice and we in the house are going to review it. I will make our position known quickly as soon as possible.
“He’s tired. He should be asked to go back to his village. That is the best thing. We have come to ask you to join PDP; join PDP to rescue Nigeria,” he said.
In his response, Bwala said he left APC purely on principle.
“I believe that there must be a nation before there can be politics. And for there to be a nation, the nation must be united and the divisive approach to politics is a cancer to every nation,” he said.
