‌Defection: Former speaker Bankole meets APC govs

There are strong indications that former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Oladimeji Bankole, is set to dump the Action Democratic Party, to join the All Progressives Congress.

This was a sequel to a meeting between the former Speaker, the Chairman of the APC Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee who is also the Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, and his Jigawa State counterpart, Abubakar Badaru, in Abuja, on Friday.

It was gathered that the three leaders met at the private residence of the Yobe State governor for a little over an hour behind closed doors.

A picture of the meeting was shared on the party’s official communication WhatsApp group, by the Director-General in charge of Media to the Yobe State Governor, Mallam Mohammed Mamman.

In an accompanying statement, Mamman said, “The Chairman APC Caretaker Committee, Hon. Mai Mala Buni, today hosted former Speaker House of Representatives, Oladimeji Bankole and Jigawa State Governor Alh. Abubakar Badaru.

“The three leaders discussed a wide range of political issues including the movement of the former Speaker and his supporters into the party.

“It is evident that APC’s opportunities in Ogun state are growing and widening. It would be recalled that former Governor of Ogun state, Otumba Gbenga Daniel who was also former Director-General of PDP’s Atiku Abubakar Presidential campaign organization has recently joined the party.”
