Former Adamawa Acting Governor Dumps APC

Former Acting Governor of Adamawa State, James Barka, has left the All Progressives Congress for his former party, Peoples Democratic Party.

The former state helmsman officially announced his return to the PDP on Thursday in Yola.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that Barka was the acting governor of Adamawa State on the platform of PDP from February 2008 to April 2008.

He was former Nigeria’s Ambassador to Tunisia, under President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, but dumped PDP for APC in 2014.

He said: “I only veered off into the APC, leaving my teeming supporters behind”.

“And as you can see, I’ve returned home.”

Governor Ahmadu Fintiri, who received the former acting governor, said the doors of the PDP-led administration were wide open to well-meaning individuals. “Our doors are open to well-meaning individuals and groups of peoples who would support the development of our dear party, state and country,” Fintiri said.
