The All Progressive Congress (APC) in Jigawa, says it has concluded arrangements to receive 4,000 members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) into its fold.
Speaking with journalists on Tuesday, Aminu Sani-Gumel, the Jigawa APC chairman, said the success was recorded as a result of the leadership qualities that President Muhammadu Buhari has exhibited.
According to Mr Sani-Gumel, all necessary procedures for the smooth transition have been concluded.
He noted that more than 2,000 members of the PDP had earlier dumped the opposition party for APC in Maigatari and Kafin Hausa Local Government Areas of the state.
Mr Sani-Gumel said that 4,000 PDP members had indicated interest to join the APC in Garki and Birnin Kudu LGAs, adding that their reception would soon hold.
“Preparation for the official ceremony to welcome them into the ruling party in the state is on top gear,” he said.
He said that the defecting PDP members were equally attracted by the party’s style of leadership towards fulfilling its campaign promises at all levels.
The chairman urged APC members to embark on mass mobilisation at the grassroots ahead of its national convention billed for February.
