From Yakubu Mustapha, Minna
The Niger State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP has received a big blow as former Minister of Sports, Engr Sani Ndanusa, dumped the party for All Progressives Congress APC.
The Chairman of Save Niger State Group, Alhaji Nasir Tafida disclosed to our reporter in Minna yesterday, however, applauded the effort of the state APC for bringing in such intellectual politician in to the party.
Tafida further appreciated the firmer minister who have served the state diligently in the past as the General Manager Water Board, Commissioner of Works and later that of Water Resources during the immediate past government of Dr. Muazu Babangida Aliyu.
He stated that “with the coming of Ndanusa into the APC, he will bring his experience and intellectual ability to bare in ensuring massive development of Niger State” he said.
The group Chairman noted that the former minister is a focused and grounded politician who is respected by the people of the three geo political zones of the state while he emphasized that his presence in the APC will add not small feathers to the party in times of further acceptability and increased votes for the party in Niger state.
Engineer Sani Ndanusa in a short response said that his acceptance to join the APC was not for political gains but to ensure development that needed all hands to be on deck if the goal of transforming the state must be achieved.
He called on all his supporters across the state to embrace peace and peaceful coexistence of the state as well to support the current administration of Governor Abubakar Sani Bello so as to move the state to next level of development.
