No fewer than 26 All progressives Congress ward chairmen and coordinators of late senator Ali Wakili, alongside 10,000 of their supporters have dumped the ruling party for the Peoples Democratic Party.
The defectors described the ruling APC as a party that lacks the capacity and the credibility to further govern Nigeria.
They also admitted that lack of justice in APC informed their defection to PDP, pointing out that since the death of Senator Wakili, they had not been carried along.
The defectors were received by Musa Wakili Nakwada, PDP Bogoro State Assembly candidate in Bogoro during a rally.
Nakwada said the defection came at a right time, apparently to end the ‘bad government’ of APC who had no agenda for its citizens.
” I was approached few days ago by the late Wakili’s 26 ward chairmen and coordinators in Bogoro LGA of Bauchi of their decision to join the PDP,” said Nakwada.
According to Nakwada, the decampees had vowed to mobilise 10,000 of their supporters to vote for PDP to bring the country back to its glory, while also lamenting the poverty under the APC government.
” I assure you of PDP support as we declare our desire to received you into the party’s fold today and we will carry you as along our members without any segregation,” declared Nakwada.
Leader of the decampees, Joseph Daniel slammed APC for abandoning the late senator Wakili’s supporters in Bauchi State.
