150 APC Members Defect To PDP In Sokoto
No fewer than 150 supporters of the ruling All Progressives Congress in Sokoto State on Sunday decamped to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.
The Chairman of the Atiku/Ubandoma Campaign Committee in Sokoto, Alhaji Isah Madorawa, received the defectors who are from Raha village, Dingyadi/Badawa ward in the Bodinga Local Government Area of the state.
The APC supporters were led to join the PDP by Mallam Dansule Abubakar, who is the chairman of Raha B polling area.
Receiving them, Madorawa said, “The PDP is the only organised and respected party that can redeem Nigerians from suffering and the poor governance created by APC-led administration in the country.
“They brought policies that brought suffering, agony to majority of Nigerians, yet they want to ride on our suffering again, trying to continue with such draconian rule because of lack of sympathy and empathy for the situations of the ordinary man.”
The PDP chieftain urged Sokoto people not to entrust their future into the hands of the APC again, describing the ruling party as agents of destruction.
Rather, he urged them to vote for the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, as well as all the other candidates being fielded by the PDP.
Also speaking, the Chairman of the PDP in the Bodinga Local Government Area, Alhaji Abubakar Sifawa, and local council chairman, Shehu Mohd, promised the defectors fairness and support.
Speaking on behalf of the defectors, Dansule Abubakar commended the good and exemplary leadership of PDP leaders in Bodinga LGA and the kindness shown to the defectors despite being from different parties.
He said they left the APC because of constant lies being peddled to bring confusion and misunderstanding in their community.
He said, “The APC is just like a disaster waiting to happen due to the arrogance of their leaders who have the habit of misleading their children to be thugs, causing trouble and injustice.
“We will mobilise our wives, children and all others to come out and fully support the PDP candidates during election.”
