Former Kaduna Senator defects to APC

The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kaduna State on Monday announced that Caleb Zagi, a Senator who represented Southern Kaduna Senatorial District from 2007 to 2011, has formally defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC, from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The senator first decamped from the PDP in 2011 to join an opposition party. He returned to the PDP a few months ago before dumping the party the second time.

The publicity secretary of APC in Kaduna state, Bege Katuka, told journalists in Kaduna that the party had welcomed Mr. Zagi.

“We have formally received Senator Caleb Zagi back to our party and it is a good development, we are pleased with his return back to where things are working,” Mr. Katuka said.

“Zagi explained deeply that it was a second chance he gave PDP, but on going back to the PDP, the internal democracy mechanism he thought would be addressed was a mirage.

“The imposition of candidates and outright bending of party rules was still the order of the day. There is nothing empirical that shows it is the development and welfare of Nigerians that is their focus instead just power for selfish interests and causing havoc for Nigerians and for all these reasons, we are in the same direction and page,” he said.

Mr. Zagi, when contacted, confirmed the party’s announcement.
Mr. Katuka also explained that the APC would soon receive prominent members of the ruling party into its fold.

“I can tell you that very soon other prominent members of the ruling party will join us,” he said. “It is a matter of time and you will see it soon. It is a testimony that we are on course and unstoppable in the state.”
