A one-time Nigerian Ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Abubakar Shehu Chika Bunu, has defected from the opposition PDP to the ruling APC in Zamfara State.
Speaking to a crowd of supporters in his home town of Bungudu, Amb. Bunu, who had once represented Maru/Bungudu Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, said his decision to denounce membership of PDP was motivated by the meaningful development projects being executed by both the Federal and Zamfara State governments.
Receiving the defectors, Chairman of APC in the state, Alhaji Bashar Abdu Suki, described the development as “big catch for APC at the state level, and also additional booster for the party at the local level.”
Suki said Amb. Bunu was an experienced politician, a crowd puller and active contributor to the development of his local community in particular and the whole state in general.
