From Lawal Sa’idu Funtua, Katsina

No fewer than 330 ex-PDP councilors dumped their party and joined the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Katsina state.
The chairman of the state ex-councilor’s forum, Katsina State chapter, Alhaji Yusuf Ibrahim, who confirmed to newsmen in an interview, weekend in Katsina that they dumped their former party, noted that it was a member of the House of Representatives, representing Dutsin-ma/ Kurfi, Alhaji Danlami Kurfi that convinced them to join the APC.
He said, “We hold series of meetings with Honourable Danlami Kurfi; and it was after these series of meetings that the lawmaker convinced us to join the APC. And he has been working day and night to make sure that the dream was actualized – and here we are today announcing our position.”
Ibrahim disclosed that their forum hold series of similar meetings with the state governor, Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari through the efforts of the lawmaker, where he said they become convinced with the good intention of the governor.
According to him, it was through that effort that the forum decided to withdraw from a suit they instituted against the APC led administration over their alleged illegal dissolution, which he said
was what stopped the conduct of local government election in the state.
He noted that their total number was 361, where he disclosed that 352 instituted the legal action, while eight that have already joined the APC opted out of the suit; adding that they are determined to withdraw before the next adjourned date at the court of appeal.
Ibrahim assured that the governor, Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari and the Rep Member, Alhaji
Danlami Kurfi, have promised them that they would not be marginalized in the running the party affairs in the state and the national level.
Meanwhile, the Rep. Member, Alhaji Danlami Kurfi has over the weekend met with the councilors in Kurfi and Dutsin-ma, preparatory to their formal decamping to the APC in a date to be announced soon.
