    into its fold- Mu’azu, a former governor of Bauchi state had been out of Nigeria for over three years
    – Mu’azu is likely to be received during APC

    A report by Daily Trust indicates that the
    ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is
    set to receive a former Peoples
    Democratic Party (PDP) national
    chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu into its
    fold.
    According to the report, Mu’azu is likely
    to be received during APC northeast
    zonal rally scheduled to hold in Bauchi at
    the weekend, where President
    Muhammadu Buhari will be present.
    Mu’azu, a former governor of Bauchi
    state had been out of Nigeria for over
    three years until December 2018 when he
    returned and gave out his daughter in
    marriage.
    The wedding ceremony was attended by
    Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and other
    top APC leaders including Bauchi state
    governor, Mohammed Abubakar.

    Thereafter, Mu’azu visited Osinbajo at
    the Presidential Villa on Wednesday,
    December 19, but declined to speak with
    State House correspondents after the
    over two hour meeting.
    The meeting held amid speculations that
    the former PDP national chairman was
    on his way to joining forces with APC,
    following reports that he was being
    wooed by the party ahead of the general
    elections.
    When contacted, the Bauchi state APC
    organising aecretary, Lawan Gyan-Gyan,
    said they had “routed” the opposition
    party in the state.
    Speaking on Mu’azu, Gyan-Gyan said the
    APC was aware of what was going on and
    will not disclose or pre-empt the former
    governor’s move.
    “We are in touch with not only Mu’azu’s
    people but other people with links to the
    PDP so that we can easily win the
    election.
    “Mu’azu is a big fish and he is already in
    our net, God willing. We have very high
    expectations that he will soon be with us.
    We cannot categorically disclose that he
    has joined the party since he has not been
    seen with the president making the 4+4
    sign. But we are confident that he is in our
    net,” he said.
    Speaking on the development, the Bauchi
    state PDP publicity secretary, Yayanuwa
    Zainabari, said the actions of the former
    governor since his arrival in the country
    were sinister but declined to say whether
    Mu’azu had dumped them or not.
    “He has not participated in any PDP
    activity since he came back. And after his
    daughter’s wedding, we know that he had
    a closed door meeting with the vice
    president.
    “Our belief was that even his coming back
    from the country was because he was
    given clearance by the presidency to come
    back after the long absence. We are not
    surprised by the actions of Mu’azu,
    Gamawa, Kaulaha and others because of
    the threat of prosecution they are facing
    from the APC government,” he said.

    Meanwhile, hours after he was
    suspended by the PDP, the deputy
    national chairman (north) of the APC and
    Bauchi indigene, Babayo Gamawa,
    defected to the ruling party and visited
    President Buhari.

    until December 2018 when he returned
