Over 12, 000 members of the ruling All Progressive Congress APC, have defected to the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, in Jibia and Kaita local government areas of Katsina, President Muhammdu Buhari’s home State.

It will be recalled that the Senator representing Buhari’s senatorial district, Katsina North, Senator Ahmed Babba Kaita, sometimes in April, also abandoned the President’s party for the PDP.

President Buhari is from Daura, one of the local government areas under Kaita.

During the weekend, the defectors were received by the Gubernatorial candidate of PDP in Katsina state, Senator Yakubu Lado Danmarke, and other party leaders in the state.

Among the defectors was an immediate past Special Adviser to Governor Aminu Bello Masari, Alhaji Aminu Lawal Jibia, Alhaji Sa'adu Mai Gishiri Kaita and a host of other notable APC members.

Speaking at the event, the governorship candidate assured the people of Jibia that he will restore security, peace and order in the area within 100 days, if elected Governor.

Danmarke lamented that Jibia that was known for business activities has been crippled due to wickedness, hatred and bad government policies.

"We will, Insha Allah, if elected, ensure that Jibia returned to its past glory as the window of economic activities in the entire country," he vowed.

He assured the defectors that they would be carried along in all the party activities in the state.

In his remarks, the leader of the defectors, Alhaji Aminu Lawal Jibia alleged that there is nothing in APC other than wickedness, hatred and malice.

“As you can see nobody of substance is now left in APC in Jibia and Kaita,” he said.

On his part, the state PDP chairman, Alhaji Lawal Uli assured the defectors of Justice and fair play, saying that is what the party is known for.

He urged the defectors to work hard for the success of the party in the forthcoming general elections.

The highlight of the event includes the burning of brooms which is the symbol of APC by the defectors.
