No fewer than 568 members of All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday, dumbed the party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kuje Area Council Federal Capital Territory.
The APC defectors, who are from Rubocchi, Chibiri, Kuje Central and Gaube wards, were received at the PDP Secretariat in Kuje.
The defectors denounced their membership cards, brooms and posters in replacement for the umbrella of the PDP.
Leader of the new members, Abila Sarkin-Yaki while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) said they were dissatisfied by the approach of APC policies.
According to him, the defectors pulled out from the APC and decided to join the PDP to contribute to the development of Kuje Area Council.
“Our stay in APC has not been encouraging and APC policies and approach has not encouraged democracy and governance in Kuje area council,’’ Sarkin-Yaki stated.
The PDP Chairman of Kuje Area Council, Alhaji Mohammed Ismaila, while receiving the defectors said the party was ready to receive more members from the APC in the interest of the party and development of the council.
