The Director General of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Campaign Council in Gombe State, Alhaji Bala Bello Tinka said he defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) to help President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid for second term.

In a phone interview with Daily Trust, Bala Tinka said he left the PDP for APC because of irreconcilable differences with stakeholders of the party and to chatter a new course in his political career.
