A businessman in Kebbi, Alhaji Mustapha Asaija, and five thousand other members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) recently left the party to join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Senator Isa Galaudu, the PDP’s gubernatorial candidate, his running mate, Alhaji Abubakar Malan, its executives and many members of the opposition in the state received the businessman with his supporters at Ambursa in Birnin Kebbi local government area, Daily Trust reports.
Asaija revealed that he left the ruling APC with his supporters to join the PDP because the party has failed in making the lives of Nigerians better in spite of its numerous promises.
He said: “I did not decamp with my supporters to get money I swear, I left the APC simply because things are not just right.”
He said he would mobilise more people in the area for the success of Isa Galaudu in the 2019 election.
Receiving the decampees, Galaudu expressed joy and called for peaceful campaign exercises that are free from hate speeches and violence.
He stated: “If elected, I promise to address issues of youth unemployment, improve civil service, maintain regular payment of pension and gratuity and come up with genuine agricultural program in Kebbi with adequate loan subsidy to farmers.”
Meanwhile, the party in the state has inaugurated its campaign committee headed by Alhaji Isah Mungadi.
