The senator representing Adamawa Northern Senatorial District, Binta Garba, has said the Peoples Democratic Party, in the twilight of the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, approached her, as the Chairman of the Adamawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, to dump the APC.
Garba said she was offered over N300m by the PDP so that Governor Jibrilla Bindow, the then candidate of the APC, would not scale through.
She said her refusal to accept the bait from the then ruling party averted a crisis with the party gaining victory at the governorship polls and the three senatorial seats in the state.
The senator, who spoke ahead of the APC primary, urged party members to re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Jibrilla Bindow and herself again.
She said, “When I was chairman of the APC in the state, the PDP approached me to ditch the party and the candidate of the party then (Bindow), who later became governor. They said he (Bindow) would not go anywhere and that I should leave the APC and work for the PDP and offered me not N100m, not even N200m nor even N300m but far more than that.
