Senator Danjuma Goje, the chairman, Senate Committee on Marine Transport, has denied dumping the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The former Governor of Gombe State denied participating in the PDP primaries.
In a statement on Monday by his spokesperson, Ahmed Isa, he described as untrue reports that he participated in the just concluded primary of the PDP’s for Gombe Central.
While insisting that he is “a loyal and proud member of the APC,” Danjuma Goje said reports of his picture on the PDP ballot paper was the handwork of mischief-makers and political opponents.
The statement read, “The attention of His Excellency, Senator Danjuma Goje has been drawn to reports in the social media claiming that he took part in the Peoples Democratic Party’s Senatorial Primary said to have taken place on Monday, May 23, 2022.
“Senator Goje is a proud member of the All Progressives Congress and the serving Senator on the platform of the APC. He is not a member of the PDP. He did not take part in the PDP primary in Gombe for the position of Senator or any other position.
“Senator Goje’s photograph on the PDP ballot paper is the work of mischief-makers and political opponents bent on tarnishing his image.”
