About 2000 members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Dass Local Government Area of Bauchi State have tendered their resignation and defected to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.
While receiving the decampees at the official commissioning ceremony of the Bundilin Dutse PDP office in Bundot ward, the PDP Chairman of Dass local government, Alhaji Shatima Sani Korau, commended them for joining his party.
Korau, who described the PDP as one united powerful political party in Africa, enjoined them to support the party to maintain its status for the development of the local government, state, and the nation.
He also assured the decampees of his council’s readiness to carry everybody along irrespective of any differences.
They were issued membership cards of the PDP to enable them to participate fully in the party affairs.
Also speaking, Hon. Ibrahim Usman Dankade, PDP Northeast Zonal Auditor, described the event as a great opportunity for the party to conveniently face the future challenge.
He urged the people of Dass to continue supporting the PDP’s transformation efforts.
In his goodwill message, the Deputy Chairman of the Dass Local Government Area, Hon. Ambassador Prince Noah (Wadata) Danmalikin Bundot, described the move as a clear indication of the party victory ahead of 2023.
Prince Noah said since the inception of democracy in 1999, Dass has never found itself in the opposition until recently due to some reasons which he said have been politically resolved, which informed the mass return of the members to the PDP.
While congratulating the decampees for taking the right step, Noah said that the PDP remains the only hope for Nigerians.
