Addressing the press conference, Yuguda’s former Commissioner for Religious Affairs and Community Relations , Salisu Ahmed Barau disclosed that the former Governor joined the APC in order to contribute to the development of the state.

Barau added that Yuguda moved to the APC along with all his supporters across the country under the Yuguda Alheri Group.

The former commissioner further informed that over 500,000 people have registered their support for the move since the former governor joined the APC adding that they are targeting one million voters for the APC.

He however informed that Yuguda left the GPN but out of his volition after consultation with all his supporters across the country while some of his supporters and former aides are still in the GPN and other political parties.

When it was yet another time for him to leave, he consulted us and we decided to join the APC,” he said.

He however dismissed insinuations that Yuguda helped in the emergence of the present Governor, Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar in 2015 while he was the outgoing PDP governor in the state.
