Ahead of the 2023 general elections, Sheikh Auwal Abdullahi, popularly known as Gafakan Akko, has left the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Sheikh Abdullahi was a former Special Adviser to Governor Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State.
Upon joining the PDP on Tuesday, the cleric declared his total support for Gombe PDP governorship candidate, Mohammed Jibrin Barde.
In a piece of related news, Barde has raised the alarm over the alleged cloning of his voice through an audio recording which is currently in circulation, mostly in social media.
He said the aim of the mischief-makers was to pitch him against key members of PDP in the state in order to cause confusion and disharmony among united members of the party, urging the public to disregard the audio.
