More than two hundred members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has left the party and joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday, August 19, 2020, in Kuje Area Council, FCT.
The leader of the decampees, Mohammed Gambo disclosed to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), that they dumped the party because they were not pleased by the method of the APC procedures and they decided to join the PDP to contribute towards the development of Kuje Area Council.
According to reports, the members handed over their APC membership cards, brooms, and posters in replacement for those of the PDP. The decampees were welcomed by the PDP Chairman of the Kuje Area, Alhaji Mohammed Ismaila at the Kuje Area Council Government House.
“We are decamping to PDP for the development of Kuje Area Council and Nigeria as a whole. Our stay in APC has not been encouraging. APC policies and approach have not encouraged democracy and governance in the area council,” he reported.
The PDP Chairman of the Kuje Area Council said more decampees were still coming to join the party for its progress and that of the Kuje Area Council. Ismaila said that the PDP would seal the chairmanship position in Kuje Area Council for the progress of the area and the country.
