No fewer than two thousand supporters of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other opposition parties have dumped their parties and defected to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) in Jigawa state.
Receiving the defectors at Kazaure, one of the APC chieftains in the state, Alhaji Bala T.O. said the party will treat the decampees equally with other members of the party in the state.
According to him, the decampees come from four local governments, including: Kazaure, Roni, Gwiwa and ‘Yankwashi local government areas in the state.
He maintained that, among the decampees are some chieftains and ex-women leaders of PDP with hundreds of their supporters.
