Over 13,000 members of the All Progressives Congress, on Saturday, dumped the ruling party and joined the Peoples Democratic Party, in Southern Kaduna.
Treasurer of the opposition party, North-West, Hon. Rabiu Bakori, who formally received the new members on behalf of the North-West Zonal PDP Chairman, Sen. Hayyatu Gwarzo, in Zonkwa, said for the party to win election come 2023 all hands must be on deck.
“The ruling party had on 2015 promised to enhance security, but have ended up enhancing fears in the minds of Nigerians. Kaduna residents must work hard to ensure that PDP wins at the polls in order to ensure justice, fairness and true democratic values,” He said.

According to him, “no other party, except the PDP has ever won an election in Southern Kaduna, and come 2023 no other party will win,” Hyat vowed.
He lamented that Southern Kaduna under the ruling party, had experienced infrastructural deficit and high level of insecurity, noting that the region only enjoyed federal appointments and infrastructural development during the PDP administration.
The defectors, led by former Senior Special Assistant to the Kaduna State Governor, Hon. Wilson Yangye, who were received amid funfair and jubilation, promised to mobilise more voters that will lead the party to victory.
He disclosed that they left the party, citing lack of inclusion, justice and fairness.
