850 PRP and PDP members in Zaria defect to APC

No fewer than 850 members of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) and People’s Redemption Party (PRP) have defected to the All Progressives Party (APC) in Zaria LGA of Kaduna State.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the defectors included the PRP Youth Leader in Zaria, Mr Ibrahim Hassan-Pako, and a prominent PDP member, Hajiya Sa’adiya Mohammed-Mai-Yanga.

Receiving the defectors at Tudun Wada Ward in Zaria on Saturday, the APC Chairman in the LGA, Alhaji Aliyu Idris-Ibrahim, assured the defectors that they would be treated fairly.

He urged the new members to feel at home and be supportive to ensure success of the party in 2019.

Idris-Ibrahim said that active support of the defectors in the general elections would be critical to APC’s victory.

He said that APC members in the council area were determined to convince more Nigerians to support President Muhammadu Buhari and Gov. Nasiru el-Rufa’I’s re-election bids because of their good performances.

“This is one of the reasons that our leaders embarked on door-to-door sensitisation of people which culminated into what we are witnessing today, receiving over 850 defectors from different political parties.

“It is our hope that more will join the train very soon, and we are going to assist them with the necessary support,” said.

Earlier, the APC Chairman, Tudun Wada Ward, Alhaji Alhassan Mohammed-Qassim, described the occasion as historic, and encouraged the defectors to be active members of the party.

He urged them to exhibit a high sense of responsibility, loyalty and commitment toward ensuring the success of the party in the 2019 General Elections

Speaking on behalf of the defectors, Hassan-Pako said they were moved by the good leadership of the APC.

He called on the party’s leadership at all levels of governance to maintain  this. (NAN)
