A former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman of Shanga Local Government Area in Kebbi state, Alhaji Yakubu Dala, and no fewer than two thousand others have reportedly dumped the party for All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to reports, all former exco members, delegates, women and youth leaders in the area were among the defectors.

Confirming the development, Dala said their decision to join APC is due to good leadership style of Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, as well as the cohesion within the party in Kebbi state.

He said: ”Before now, I was a member of PDP, but now decamped to APC. I can tell you that PDP is dead in Shanga and with our coming to APC, the party will continue to swell.

“I assure you that we joined the APC in good faith.”

Receiving the decampers, the Kebbi State APC Chairman, Alhaji Muhammad Kana Zuru, assured them of inclusion in the party’s affairs.

He charged them to also work towards the greatness of the party while reminding the residents of the council of some of the developmental strides of Governor Bagudu in their area.

The Speaker of Kebbi State House of Assembly, Sani Abubakar Lolo, and the SSG, Babale Umar Yauri, also respectfully spoke of the need for all the party members to remain united to continue to provide development to the people of the state.

The SSG, Babale Umar Yauri, expressed his confidence in the efficacy of consultation in pacifying aggrieved members of APC who defected to the opposition to return.

He said: “Incumbent administration in the state has adopted the option of carrot and benevolence to strengthening the unity, understanding and cohesion among APC members as well as bringing aggrieved defectors back into the fold of APC.”

Also, Alhaji Isyaku Nasarawa, an Adviser to Governor Bagudu described the new entrants as a ‘ big catch’ for APC in Shanga.

He extolled the efforts of the PA to the Governor, Alhaji Faruk Musa Yaro ( Enabo), in the development of politics in Kebbi.
