The Peoples Democratic Party in Kuje Area Council, FCT, on Wednesday received more than two hundred members of the All Progressives Congress.
The Chairman of the party in Kuje Area Council, Mohammed Ismaila, received the decampees at the Kuje Area Council Government House.
The decampees handed over their APC membership cards, brooms and posters in replacement for those of the PDP.
Mohammed Gambo, the leader of the decampees, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) said they were dissatisfied by the approach of APC policies.
Gambo further stated that they joined the opposition party to contribute to the development of Kuje Area Council.
“We are decamping to PDP for the development of Kuje Area Council and Nigeria as a whole.”
“Our stay in APC has not been encouraging. APC policies and approach have not encouraged democracy and governance in the area council,” he said.
The PDP Chairman of Kuje Area Council while receiving the decampees said more are still coming to the party for its development and that of Kuje Area Council.
Ismaila said that PDP would clinch the chairmanship position in Kuje Area Council for the development of the area and the country.
