Mass Defection Hits PDP, Other Parties In Kwara, As Thousands Join APC

Thousands of defectors from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party and other parties on Saturday formally pledged their allegiance to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State, with Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq saying the development attests to the rising popularity of the party owing to the people-focused programmes and policies of his administration.
“Evidently, President Muhammadu Buhari, Governors, lawmakers and all officials elected on the platform of APC are clearly living up to the dreams of the founding fathers of our country. The economy is growing stronger amid unprecedented infrastructural development while increasing attention is being paid to security of lives and properties,” the Governor observed, amid cheers from the defectors, top APC chieftains, and government functionaries who included Deputy Governor Kayode Alabi, Speaker Danladi Yakubu-Salihu, Secretary to the State Government Prof Mamman Saba Jubril.



“Back home in Kwara State, we have remained committed to good governance. We are indeed proud of the impacts that our investments in human capital and infrastructural development are having on the people. Our social security programmes targeting the poor and vulnerable are glaring. Security of lives and properties remains a top priority while we are putting Kwara on a sound footing to lead the North once again.
“We have also prioritised youths and women empowerment and inclusion, widening employment opportunities and paying attention to all that can guarantee brightest future for our younger generation. 
“This mass defection to APC today under our leadership is a tonic for all of us in trusted positions to continue to give our best for the collective good of our people. I urge you all to work together as a team and members of the same APC family in Kwara State.”
He said the party is made stronger with its policies that guarantee equal opportunity for all members, old or new, adding that no fewer than 400,000 new (APC) members have so far been registered in the state.

The chairman caretaker committee of the APC Abdullahi Samari said the party is pleased to receive people who cherished the developmental strides of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq and joined the party from ward level across the state. 

"When you go back to your respective communities, I urge you to work together. Accept all members. APC has no faction in Kwara. Elders and leaders of the party should go back home, embrace peace, and ensure that everyone works together for the success of the party across the state,” he added.

Speakers from the three senatorial districts took turns to highlight the various strides of the AbdulRazaq-led administration, commending him for his special attention to the poor and the vulnerable.
Defectors included all the immediate past council chairmen, including former ALGON chief Joshua Adekanye, Hon. Fatai Adeniyi Garba (Labaka), and Hon. Yinka Dallas, who hailed the Governor for his democratic dispositions and his commitment to developments with direct impacts on the people especially at the grassroots.
