A former governor of Gombe state, Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, has pledged to support the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to win in 2023.
The PDP chieftain spoke on Monday, November 21, at the Gombe Township Stadium, the venue of the PDP presidential campaign.
He described Atiku as the next “president of Nigeria”, Daily Trust reported.
Dankwambo also donated 20 buses to the campaign of the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar.
He announced the donation when Atiku visited Gombe for the PDP presidential campaign rally in the state.
Until his surprise appearance at the PDP presidential rally, the former Gombe governor was a political ally and strong supporter of Rivers state governor Nyesom Wike.
He used to be part of the aggrieved PDP chieftains who are not backing Atiku’s presidential bid after Iyorchia Ayu refused to step down as the party’s national chairman.
However, with his presence at the rally and donation of vehicles, Dankwambo has dumped the Wike’s camp and keyed into the Atiku project.
