Two Peoples Democratic Party ward chairmen in Kogi Local Government Area, and a former Special Adviser, Muhammed Ozahi and Abdulkarim Shaibu Saikayi have defected to the All Progressives Congress.
According to Daily Post, the duo who defected alongside thousands of their members were the former Ward Chairmen of Girinya and KKSE, respectively.
Equally, Hon Ibrahim Usman Egye, also a former strong pillar of the opposition party joined the APC with his supporters from different ethnic groups.
Others who equally defected were the Next level Vanguard Group Chairman, Comrade Abdullahi Omare Muhammed who led some of its members to the APC, explaining that they have given out their best to the PDP but they have not been rewarded.
According to the defectors, they have seen that the reward system in APC is real, noting that they have not benefited much when they were with the PDP.
“The APC is a party that is fulfilling the promises it made to the people. We can no longer wait but to join the moving train,” they added.
In his remarks at the ceremony, Hon. Bashir Gegu, Kogi State Commissioner for Solid Minerals and Natural Resources, commended the defectors for their courage, tasking them to be loyal to the system, committed and show capacity by working assiduously for the APC.
