The former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Babayo Gamawa, has explained why he left the party for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He accused the leadership of the main opposition party of suspending him without granting him a fair hearing.
“Just an allegation without a fair hearing, they said they have suspended me from office. I want to call on them to check the secretariat. In politics, they should know what is happening on daily basis at the secretariat,” he said.
His comments come shortly after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja.
Gamawo was suspended on Tuesday by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party over allegations of neglect of duty and anti-party activities.
Reacting to the suspension, he said the party’s leadership would regret its action taken against him as he is not disturbed at all.
He added, “I know my rights and I know what the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria provides on a fair hearing. They did wrong. Though I have no regret, they will regret their action.
“My conscience has been telling me that place is not the best for me. I believe in President Muhammadu Buhari. I believe in what he has been doing for this country right from his military era.”
