Alhaji Ibrahim Abdullahi Danbaba, the senator representing Sokoto south senatorial district at the National Assembly has declared that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will win 10 northern states in the forthcoming general elections.
Danbaba who was among the lawmakers that recently decamped to PDP at the National Assembly said this in Sokoto on Sunday, July 29.
The senator who also claimed he left the APC because of lack of equity, justice and fairness to all members said he did not regret dumping the party because they were not being carried along in the scheme of things, Daily Trust reports.
He also faulted the federal government in the killings in some part of the country.
"The APC-led federal government has derailed from its mandate and failed to meet the yearnings of Nigerians," he added.
"I am the vice chairman of the Senate committee on Army and I know how much that has been expended on security in the country. We are facing security challenges in Zamfara, Kaduna, Sokoto and many states and people are being killed.
"No strategy has been adopted to tackle security. Villagers in Zamfara are now running to local government headquarters. So, the situation is getting worse in the country," he added.
Going further, he argued that President Buhari was being misled by people that surrounded him for their personal benefits.
He therefore listed 10 states that will be won by the PDP in 2019. The states are: Benue, Kaduna, Kano, Plateau, Kogi, Kwara, Bauchi, Gombe, Adamawa and Sokoto states.
He also accused the APC government of fighting perceived enemies in the name of fighting corruption.
