Over 10,000 members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) have dumped the party for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Katsina State.
This is coming barely four days to the conduct of governorship and state house of assembly elections across the country.
The defectors mostly associates of former governor of Katsina State, Alhaji Ibrahim Shehu Shema were received by governor Aminu Masari of the State at the Council Chamber of General Muhammadu Buhari Government House, Katsina.
The Director General of Katsina APC Campaign Committee, Architect Ahmed Musa Dangiwa disclosed this to reporters in a Press Conference held at the Tinubu/Shettima Campaign Office located in the state capital, stating that APC is becoming stronger in the state.
Dangiwa, however, drew the attention of security agencies and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the state to be on alert, noting that PDP is allegedly planning to bring thugs from Kano and Zamfara States to disrupt the forthcoming Saturday’s governorship and state house of assembly election process.
“They have made all arrangements to bring in the thugs to cause trouble for the forthcoming elections.
“So we will like to inform security agencies to be on alert on the PDP plot because, through out of our campaign tour, we toured 361 wards across the 34 LGAs of Katsina State and we have attacked no one or offices of the opposition parties. But unfortunately, there was attack on us in Ɗanmarke, the hometown of the Governorship Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party which led to injuries to some of our supporters and some of our campaign vehicles were broken down.
“They are bringing these tactics may be because they realized that they are going to lose these elections,” he insisted.
