Dungurawa stated this while introducing the new party members to Governor Yusuf at the Government House on Saturday, February 10.
“This gathering has displayed what Aramposu describes as the new model of politics. I am overwhelmed to receive these leading politicians with their supporters into our great party.”
“These politicians have the spirit to assist and help the people of their local government. But unfortunately, they found themselves under a party with greedy leaders who are only interested in building their personal whims and caprices."
