From Sani Gazas Chinade, Damaturu
Hundreds of supporters of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from Fune Local Government Area of Yobe State have defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and have been formally received into the party by the Acting Chairman, APC National Caretaker Committee and the state governor, Alhaji Mai Mala Buni.
The ex-lawmaker, who represented the constituency at the state House of Assembly, Hon. Abdu Zoto who led the defectors, said PDP was embroiled in crisis, hence their determination and collective decision to jettison PDP for APC.
Governor Buni, who formally welcomed them into the APC, assured them of equal treatment in the party.
He advised them to work for the success of APC in the upcoming local government election in the state slated for December 5, this year.
