246 former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) councilors who served under the administration of ex-governor of the state Ibrahim Shema has yesterday dumped the party for All Progressive Congress (APC).
The spokesman Yusuf Ibrahim Castro of the ex-councilors revealed this when they paid a courtesy visit to governor Aminu Bello Masari at General Muhammadu Buhari House.
According to him, their defection was triggered by Masari’s good leadership style and fatherly support given to them by the Governor.
He equally reiterated their support for the governor and to that of President Muhammadu Buhari ahead of 2019 elections.
In his address, Governor Masari said the APC is a party for all as it has the common man as its focal point.
