The Nasarawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the 2023 general elections, has received hundreds of new members who defected from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP).
Reports reaching Naija News today revealed that over two thousand people newly declared their support for the APC in Nasarawa.
The state Governor Abdullahi Sule received the defectors into the ruling camp on Saturday as they pledged their loyalty to the APC at the party’s campaign rally in the Nasarawa Local Government Area of the state.
In his remark, Governor Sule assured the new members of equal treatment with existing party members.
He expressed confidence that with the massive turnout at the rally, the people of the area had once again demonstrated their readiness to deliver the APC in the 2023 general elections, as they had always stood by the party in past elections.
“We are united in the APC. We are seeing others leaving their party to come and join us because of the unity within our party. Any loyal party member will not seek to create a crisis in the party,” the governor added.
On his part, the Chairman of the State APC campaign council, Senator Abubakar Sodangi, urged the party stakeholders from the area to jettison their differences to ensure the party’s success in the 2023 poll.
He said, “All the critical stakeholders must be united and work together for the party’s success. We are to work together towards delivering the party in Nasarawa Local Government Area. I am happy that our women and youths are together with us in the struggle to ensure victory for all candidates of our party, the APC.”
Meanwhile, the Chairman of Nasarawa LGA, Muhammed Ottos, had earlier commended Governor Sule for his efforts in developing the area and the state at large while assuring of his supporter’s readiness to vote for candidates of the APC in 2023 massively.
