At least 10,000 members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) are set to decamp to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Katsina on Tuesday.
Katsina is presently governed by an APC Governor, Aminu Bello Masari and it happens to be president Muhammadu Buhari‘s home state.
Naija News obtained an information on Monday from the AtikuCare Foundation, Katsina State chapter containing details of the defection plan.
Signed by the Director Media and Publicity (North West), Jacob Onjewu Dickson, the statement announced that the ceremony is billed for the PDP Secretariat in Katsina. “In a solidarity move with former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, his loyalists are dumping APC.
They are pitching their tent for the PDP”, it noted. “The state chairman of the foundation, Alhaji Yusuf Ghali Tabare has assured that arrangements have been concluded towards the double events of inauguration and welcoming the decampees. “The event which is scheduled for 10am is also expected to attract several top politicians from within and outside Katsina State”.
