Reports say that not fewer than 15, 000 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have defected from the opposition to ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi state. The incident occurred at Omala local government area in Kogi’s Eastern senatorial axis.
According to the report, the defectors have been promised equal treatment by leaders of the APC.
Elder Simon Achuba received the defectors and assured them at a ceremony in Abejukolo, headquarters of the local government that would reposition the state for growth and development.
He also urged those yet to make up their minds in joining APC to do so quickly before it is late.
Achuba commended the defectors for their boldness and pleaded with them to join hands with state governor Yahaya Bello and contribute their quota in the task of building a virile state.
He said the results recorded by Bello administration were a product of hard work, transparency and dogged commitment of the governor to impact on the lives of the people.
