Ahead of the 2019 elections, another political cross-carpeting has seen the Secretary of the PDP in Kebbi State transfer to the APC.
Muhammadu Sakaba, the party’s Secretary said he’s defecting to the APC with his supporters.
Sakaba was hosted by Governor Atiku Bagudu, as he announced his defection in Birnin-Kebbi, the Kebbi State capital.
“I have now defected from PDP to APC due to my belief on the ability of President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Atiku Bagudu.
“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.
Sakaba promised to work in favour of Bagudu and Buhari to ensure their reelections in 2019.
“We will help them also in ensuring that agriculture becomes alternative source of revenue generation in our country,” he said.
Governor Bagudu hailed Sakaba’s support for the APC saying the development of the state is his main interest.
“I know you as a good, honest and straight forward person, who cherishes the unity of our state above personnel interest,” he said.
Sakaba’s move is yet another one in a wave of defection rocking the Nigerian political scene.
