The Secretary of the Kebbi State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Muhammadu Sakaba, has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
NAN reports that Sakaba, who was received by Gov. Atiku Bagudu, announced his defection in Birnin Kebbi on Wednesday.
He said, “I have now defected from PDP to APC due to my belief on the ability of President Muhammadu Buhari and Gov. Atiku Bagudu.
“They have demonstrated commitments to the progress of the nation and our state respectively within the four years of their leadership.
“My hope now is to rally round them and offer my utmost support and contribution to ensure the sustainability of their progressive agenda,” he said.
“We will help them also in ensuring that agriculture becomes an alternative source of revenue generation in our country,” he said.
In his remarks, Bagudu commended Sakaba for his appreciation of Buhari-APC led administration.
“I know you as a good, honest and straight forward person, who cherishes the unity of our state above personal interest,” he said.
Bagudu called on well-meaning people of the state to emulate Sakaba in order to move the state forward.
