The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the decision by Marwa to defect to

PDP followed a meeting held on Sunday with his supporters in Yola after

their complaint of being marginalised in the APC.
In his speech,Marwa accused APC's national leadership of handing over the

party in the state to Governor Murtala Nyako.
Marwa, who contested the last state governorship election with Nyako under

defunct CPC, said his supporters were marginalised during the recent APC

membership registration in the state.
He noted that as members of the legacy parties that formed APC he would

not accept a situation where Nyako, who came from PDP, would just take

over the party from “the original founders in the state.”

in the party.
Others, who spoke at the meeting shortly before the voice vote, insisted

that they should leave for PDP their original party.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that Marwa left PDP for defunct CPC in

2011 after the conduct of the PDP governorship primaries which nominated

Governor Murtala Nyako to run for second term.
