More than 150 members of the All Progressives Congress on Monday defected to the Peoples Democratic Party in Kuje Area Council, FCT.
The defectors handed over their APC membership cards, brooms and posters in replacement for the umbrella of the PDP.
Godwin Poyi, leader of the defectors and former Kuje APC Chairman, told the News Agency of Nigeriathat they were dissatisfied by the approach of the party’s policies in their area.
Poyi said: “We decided to join the PDP to contribute to the development of Kuje Area Council and the country 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.”
Receiving the defector, the Chairman of PDP in Kuje Area Council, Ismaila Mohammed, said more defectors were still coming to the party for the development of democracy in Kuje.
Mohammed said the PDP would clinch the chairmanship position come 2022 in Kuje Area Council for the development of the area and the country.
