In Jigawa State, some 1,266 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The decampees were met by Alhaji Aminu Sani, the State APC chairman, on Sunday in Maigatari Local Government Area.
This comes just weeks after he was elected as the All Progressives Congress’s (APC) State Chairman.
According to the party’s constitution, all of the state’s executive members, from ward to state Congress, were elected by consensus.
The party chairman, receiving the decampees in Maigatari, said the development demonstrated that the party had kept its promises.
