Alhassan Bawu, the campaign director of the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, in Bauchi State, has defected to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Bawu, who dumped the LP alongside other officials of the party in the North-Easst, blamed the Party’s lack of structure at the State, local and ward levels for the decision.
He said: “The LP is not strong and won’t be able to win a single seat in the region.’’
