The Nasarawa state PDP gain weight as brooms of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) were burnt at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rally in Awe Local Government Area of Nasarawa State as some members of the ruling APC dumped the party for the opposition PDP.
Receiving the new members at the PDP rally in Awe Local Government Area of the state, Francis Orogu, the state chairman of PDP, said the defectors were APC members from the southern senatorial zone of the state.
Orogu, who received them at the PDP zonal rally in Awe noted that the defectors would be given equal treatment as other members.
According to Orogu, ”Today we are receiving 5000 decampees of the ruling APC, into our fold and they will be given equal treatment as we are giving our members.
He, however, called on decampees to work for the victory of PDP, in the forthcoming general election come 2023, in the state.
