The Senator representing Sokoto South Senatorial District, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdullahi Danbaba said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will win 10 northern states in the forthcoming general elections.
Danbaba is among the lawmakers that recently decamped to PDP at the National Assembly.
Speaking to some selected journalists in Sokoto on Sunday which Naija247news was present, he said he did not regret dumping the party that made him Senator because they were not being carried along in the scheme of things.
He further explained that he left the party because of lack of equity, justice and fairness to all members.
“The APC-led federal government has derailed from its mandate and failed to meet the yearnings of Nigerians,” he added.
Danbaba who is the vice chairman of the House Committee on Army, lamented that the APC has failed to address the three core issues of security, economy and corruption for which it was voted into power in 2015.
“I am the Vice Chairman of the Senate Committee on Army and I know how much that has been expended on security in the country. We are facing security challenges in Zamfara, Kaduna, Sokoto and many states and people are being killed,”he said
He added: “No strategy has been adopted to tackle security. Villagers in Zamfara are now running to local government headquarters. So, the situation is getting worse in the country. ”
He noted that Buhari was being misled by people that surrounded him for their personal benefits.
He was confident PDP would take over Benue, Kaduna, Kano, Plateau, Kogi, Kwara, Bauchi, Gombe, Adamawa and Sokoto states in 2019.
He said that the balance of power was now tilted in favour of the PDP.
He accused the APC government of fighting perceived enemies in the name of fighting corruption, citing the travails of the Senate President.
