Over 12,000  members of APC defect to PDP in Zamfara State

At least, 12,562 members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State including former commissioners and local councils officials, on Thursday, August 15th defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The defectors were officially received into the PDP by Governor Bello Matawalle in Gusau. Among the APC defectors were three former commissioners, Alhaji Idris Keta, Alhaji Abdulkadir Ahmed and Alhaji Aliyu Tsafe along with their loyalists and supporters.

Others were two former local government council chairmen, Alhaji Musa Tsafe and Alhaji Ahmed Kantoma, as well as two former Directors-General, Alhaji Bashir Kwaren Ganuwa and Alhaji Saminu Lawali. All the defectors are from Tsafe Local Government Area of the state.

In their separate speeches, Alhaji Idris Keta and Alhaji Habibu Alo said they were drawn to the PDP because of the peace being enjoyed by their communities under the present leadership of governor Matawalle. They added that by addressing the security challenges facing the state within a short period, the governor has earned their trust and would support him to further ensure sustainable peace in the state.

In his remarks, Matawalle commended the defectors for the “wise decision” to join the PDP and assured that they would receive equal treatment as any other party member. The governor reiterated his government’s determination to improve the living standards of the people including those affected by banditry.

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe

    Maybe you could space it out better?
