The commissioners apparently dumped APC in support of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, who moved to the PDP earlier.

The defectors include Atiku’s daughter, Dr. Fatima Atiku Abubakar, who is the commissioner of health, Commissioner of Works and Housing, Lilian Stephen, Commissioner of Land and Survey, Yayaji  Mijinyawa  and Commissioner  of Youths and Sports, Mr Augustine Ayuba.

Others are Alhaji Daware, Commerce and Trade and Ahmadu Waziri, Agriculture.

It remains to be seen if Gov. Bindow will sack the commissioners.

It will also be recalled that the governor recently pledged his loyalty to President Muhammadu Buhari and debunked claim that he would defect to PDP with Atiku.
