“I have now defected from PDP to APC due to my belief in the ability of President Muhammadu Buhari and Gov. Atiku Bagudu administration.
“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.
But chairman of Kebbi PDP Alhaji Saidu Haruna described the defection of the scribe as nothing but inconsequential.
He said: “The PDP being the most rampaging political force in kebbi and indeed Nigeria is the more encouraged by the overwhelming and massive support it is getting from the electorates and the general masses in the state.
“So whatever may be the motivation behind the defection of any individual, however high place in the party PDP remain unperturbed, undeterred and poised to take over power from the APC come 2019.”
