In Bauchi State, no fewer than 20,350 members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) switched to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

This was stated by Gov. Bala Mohammed’s Special Assistant for Political Matters as he welcomed the decampees at a gathering on Saturday in Bauchi.

He claims that the decampees are from the state’s 20 local government areas.

One of the decampees, Bala Zungur said the development was informed by the feat achieved by the ruling PDP in the state, especially in the area of infrastructure development.

He said the Bala Mohammed’s administration had constructed thousands kilometers of urban and rural roads, schools, hospitals and other viable projects designed to improve the lives of the people of the state.

He said the decampees comprised APC stakeholders and party leaders across the electoral wards, adding that they would support the PDP to enable it to consolidate on the gains recorded in the state.

Zungur urged the PDP leadership at state and national levels to fully integrate them into the party with justice, equity and fairness, and pledged support for its candidates in the forthcoming genedal election.

“We left the APC because it failed to address numerous internal crisis which might result to electoral defeat in the 2023 general election.

“The decampees in this place have worked and supported APC for eight years, but the party seems to be going astray without bearing, we finally returned to the PDP to move the state forward.

“1,000 people across the 20 LGAs defected to the PDP, and they are all here with us,” he said, and urged the governor and leadership of the party to protect the interest of the decampees.
