Yopi: Over 250 PDP members dump a party for APC

The Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Pony, received more than 250 members of the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP), who defected to the All Progressives Congress, (APC) in the Fune local government area of ​​the state.

Upon receiving the governors, Governor Boni, represented by his deputy, Eddie Barde Gopana, described the development as a great loss for the opposition.

He assured the newcomers that the party would give them equal rights and opportunities like other members, saying “the APC believes in a united Nigeria, unlike the PDP”.

In his remarks, the head of the State Party, Mohamed Ghadaga, who congratulated the dissidents on their joining the ruling General People’s Congress party, urged members of other political parties in the state to follow suit to move the state forward.

Speaking on behalf of the defectors, former PDP executive member of Fune local government Malan Eliasu Adamu Jhelum said their decision to switch allegiance could not have come at a better time.

“We have abandoned our former party because of the transparent leadership of Governor Mai Mala Puni,” Gillum declared.

The highlight of the occasion was the presentation of APC flags to the newcomers by the Deputy Governor of the state with the support of the party chief in the state, Mohamed Gadaka.
