The Taraba Commissioner for Information, Mr. Anthony Danbram, has resigned his appointment with the state government.
Danbram also dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA).
The former commissioner, who officially received APGA’s membership card on Friday at the state secretariat of the party in Jalingo on Friday, said the unfair treatment meted on him by the PDP over his ambition to represent Lai constituency in the state Assembly, necessitated his exit from the party and consequently led to relinquishing his appointment.
“I met with my constituents on Wednesday and they mandated me to get another political party aside the PDP, and whatever the name of the political party is they are ready to join.
“Now that I have chosen APGA, our party will be the number one political party in the whole of Lau Local Government Area, because in the past I have built structures from the ward level to the local government headquarters, ”NAN quoted him as saying.
Receiving the defector, the state chairman of APGA, Mr. Ishaya Bako, assured him of the party’s support in achieving his political aspiration
