The Chairman of Grassroots Mobilizers for Buhari, Federal Capital chapter, Comrade Egbunu Yahaya, has denied knowledge of some members who announced their defection to the PDP from the APC.
Yahaya said the GMB is a political group that started operations before the 2015 general elections precisely in 2014. And that the group is still and will remain loyal to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Yahaya on Wednesday while briefing newsmen in Abuja disassociate the GMB from that press conference illegally held on behalf of the group without other members of national or state excos.
“Our attention has been drawn to a fake news of defection of members of Grassroots Mobilizers for Buhari to the PDP.
“The story is not true but a calculated attempt by some unpatriotic elements to cause confusion in the party, “Yahaya said.
He further stated that Yusuf Musa Ardo and his group defected from GMB to PDP for their own selfish interest. “Grassroots Mobilizers for Buhari and all other national members are with President Muhammadu Buhari”.
Lambasting the perpetrators and cohorts of the vicious act, Yahaya maintained that in view of the achievements of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, the APC is waxing stronger in all the geo-political zones.
“This is another attempt by enemies of progress to cause disaffection and confusion in the APC. We remain solid and committed member of the APC.
“Yusuf Musa Ardo should seek attention from legitimate pursuits. We are not bothered and will not lose sleep over the activities of political jobbers”.
Yahaya while describing himself as an unrepentant member of the APC, and a strong activist, he added that the party “remains the only political party to salvage Nigeria from the atrocities of the previous administrations.’’
“Yusuf Ardo & Nathaniel Isa did the press conference on their own without contacting the Pioneer members of GMB so we disassociate our self from that press conference”.
Also speaking on the defection, the National Women Leader of Grassroots Mobilizers for Buhari, Hajiya Awa Al-Karim said Yusuf Musa and his followers are political jobbers and described their act as mischievous.
She said, “The original funding members of this group Grassroots Mobilizers for Buhari GMB are 100% loyal to APC as a Party and our President Muhammad Buhari/Osinbajo come February 16th, 2019. So we the entire loyal members of GMB disassociate our self from that move”.
