The immediate past chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Kebbi State, and dozens of other leaders of the party, have dumped the party for the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Three aggrieved governorship aspirants of the party, namely, Mansir Mansa, Hussaini Adamu and Zubairu Dabai, also defected to the APC.
They accused the PDP of victimizing them, and expressed a lack of confidence the party will give them justice.
Other party leaders who dumped the PDP include Abbas Jega, Danjuma Kamba, Shehu Malisa, Bala Gwandu, Rilwanu Auwal, Ilyasu Kambaza, Dambegu Vice, Usman Zuru, Danjuma Zuru, Aliyu Kalgo, Haruna Magarza, Abu Dangoje, and Bello Kaoje, who lost the Suru/Bagudu federal constituency election to an APC candidate.
The running mate of the APC governorship candidate, Sama’ila Yombe, who received the decampees in Zuru on Sunday, said the party was consulting with many PDP members who will also join the APC before the governorship election.
“PDP is not a party to remain in,” he said.
