>Over one thousand five hundred supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have decamped to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ilirowa village, Buji Local Government, Jigawa State.
Receiving the decampees on Monday, the State Assembly member representing Birnin Kudu constituency Siraja Muhammad Kantoga appreciated their decision to dump the PDP.
The member, who was represented by his co-ordinator, Nura Suleiman Jidawa, assured them of equal treatment like any other member of the party.
He, however, urged them to work hard for the success of the party in the upcoming 2023 general elections.
“Ilirowa village is one of the strongholds of the PDP and with this development, I am sure there will be no more PDP in the area,” he said.
Speaking on behalf of the decampees, Malam Lasisi said that they decided to dump the PDP for the APC based on its good policies and programs for the development of the State and the country.
