‘Too much chawus and lawlessness in Gombe PDP Gubernatorial primaries. A serving Senator Bayero Nafada who is one of the candidates allegedly Slapped Dankwambo’s commissioner who is also a gubernatorial aspirant
So Dankwambo wanted Sen Bayero but the candidates convinced him to endorse Jamilu. Sen Bayero later came in with his thugs and promised the delegates one million each and ordered his thugs to beat anyone who claims Dankwambo endorsed him
