5,000 supporters of Kwankwaso defect to APC


No fewer than 5,000 members of Kwankwasiya group in Kebbi State have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Kwankwasiyya is the political structure of Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso who represents Kano Central senatorial zone in the National Assembly.

Members of the group were received by the Deputy Governor of Kebbi, Alhaji Samaila Yombe, at the APC Secretariat, Birnin-Kebbi on Tuesday, NAN reports.

On why the members defected to the ruling party, the group’s former State Organising Secretary, Abdullahi Nayalwa, noted that they took the decision because of the landmark achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari and Gov. Abubakar Bagudu in agriculture and other sectors.

“We have finally dumped PDP and joined APC because APC administration is the only government that can bring change and unity in the country.

“We have gone to the market and the market was not favourable. We decided to return home with over 5,000 of our members and more are coming by God’s grace,” he said.

Receiving the defectors, Yombe commended them for taking the decision to return to the APC and assured them of equal treatment.

The deputy governor, who described their return to the party as timely, also said that they had chosen the right path.
