The Taraba commissioner for information, Anthony Danbram has resigned his appointment with the state government and moved to APGA to fulfill his political ambition.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Danbram officially received APGA’s membership card on Friday, September 14 at the state secretariat of the party in Jalingo, the state capital.
He used the occasion to announce his resignation as an appointee to Governor Darius Ishaku and his exit from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
According to him, the unfair treatment meted on him by the PDP over his ambition to represent Lai constituency in the state Assembly, necessitated his exit from the party and consequently led to relinquishing his appointment.
“I met with my constituents on Wednesday and they mandated me to get another political party aside the PDP, and whatever the name of the political party is they are ready to join.
“Now that I have chosen APGA, our party will be the number one political party in the whole of Lau local government area, because in the past I have built structures from the ward level to the local government headquarters,” he said.
Receiving the defector, the state chairman of APGA, Mr Ishaya Bako assured him of the party’s support in achieving his political aspiration (NAN).
