The Peoples Democratic Party has lost about 1,500 supporters after they decamped to the All Progressives Congress in Rimi and Kurfi Local Government Areas of Katsina State.
The event happened on Thursday, according to Channels Television.
Those who decamped were led by a former councilor, Abdul’aziz Makwalla.
Makwalla while presenting the individuals to the APC officials in the state, disclosed that, the PDP Women Leader in the Area, had also crossed-carpeted into the APC.
This political development took place on Thursday as the Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC in Katsina State, Dr Dikko Umaru Radda rounded off his campaign tour in Katsina Senatorial District at Rimi and Kurfi Local Government Areas of the State.
Radda seized the moment to reiterate his determination to fight insecurity in the state if elected as governor.
He, also, promised to create job opportunities for the teeming unemployed youths, enhance health care facilities and improve farming using modern methods.
Dr Radda further donated five motorcycles to members of the vigilante in Rimi Local Government Area and three to the Wurma Community Vigilantes in Kurfi Local Government Area of the State, stating that, it was his modest contribution towards assisting them to fight insecurity in the areas.
“I know that some shameless people would come and tell you that APC had failed to provide security for you. You should respond by asking them to account for the large amount of money made available to them in more than seven years to tame insecurity without success”, Dr Radda warned Kurfi residents.
Radda in turn, received a gift of the Holy Qur’an and a ram from the Fardami Ward residents and a horse donated by the Village Head of Kaɗanɗani, in Rimi Local Government Area.
