The Minister of State for Federal Capital Territory, Ramatu Aliyu has disclosed that about 4,000 People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) faithful have decamped to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwali Area Council of Abuja, ahead of the Federal Capital Territory Area Councils election scheduled for February 2022.

 

This she made known in a statement by her Special Assistant on Media, Austine Elemue on Sunday.

 

While emphasizing party supremacy as the watchword for both old and new members, the minister described the event as a ‘harvest’ of over 4,000 members.

She said: “We are here today to receive over 4,000 of our brothers and sisters who have decided on their own to join the ruling APC.

They came from various political parties especially the major opposition parties, the PDP and APGA. We appreciate them.

“They have keyed into the agenda of the second term of the incumbent chairman, the second term of credible governance, the second term of competent leadership, the second term of solid management of our common patrimony in Kwali area council”.

 

Earlier, the APC Chairman in FCT, Alhaji Abdulmalik Usman, revealed that some of the decampees are founding members of the All Progressives Congress who are now returning home.

“Today, we are here to make another history, the history of receiving our brothers, some of whom we started this party together.

“Our brothers and sisters whom we struggled hard to form this party at that time. So it is welcome back home for these members sitting here today.

“We are here to receive these people back home. They travelled somewhere and they said the atmosphere there is not conducive for them.

“Coming back home, they are back to meet their brothers and sisters in good health and we have nothing against them than to receive them back to their house.

“We are not here to campaign because we don’t want anybody to indict our party,” he said further.

While presenting the symbolic broom to the leaders of the decampees by the FCT Minister of State and the party chairman, Usman the APC FCT Chairman expressed the confidence that come February 12, 2022, the APC would win the entire six area councils and the 62 wards in the nation’s capital.

Mr Usman Jiya, the former APGA aspirant on behalf of the decampees assured party faithful that their return to APC was to consolidate on the achievements recorded by the incumbent chairman of Kwali area council.

Jiya assured all members of their dedication and team spirit in the forthcoming area councils poll.

Some of the others who decamped include Salihu Kolo, former State PDP Deputy Chairman, Mr Habila Bwaba, former PDP State Vice Chairman, Maimunat Adamu.
