Badaru spoke at the reception of Grace Bent, a former senator representing Adamawa south, who dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday in Yola, Adamawa state capital.
The Jigawa governor said the Buhari administration had made giant strides towards improving road, rail, aviation and power infrastructure as well as various interventions designed to address social, economic and security challenges in the country.“Buhari is honest, transparent and sleeps with Nigerians at heart,” he said.
“Nigerians begin to see the effort of Buhari in all sectors and people are now joining the APC in thousands.”
On his part, Mai Mala Buni, governor of Yobe and chairman, APC caretaker extraordinary convention planning committee, congratulated Bent for joining the party.
Buni, represented by former Senate President Ken Nnamani, said she would be carried along and treated like other members of the party.
