About 9, 000 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the defectors were led by the daughter of a popular Islamic cleric, late Sheikh Isyaka Rubiu, Umma Salama Isyaka Rabiu.
Speaking on Sunday at a special event she hosted in Kano, Umma Salama said: “Today, we gathered here today, to celebrate these 10,000 people, who made a decision to leave their various political parties for our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“These are all card-carrying members of the PDP, NNPC, ADC, PRP, ADP and other political parties, who have decided to leave darkness for light, to leave regression for progress to leave fear and intimidation for honour and integrity.
“As you can see today, these people are today to delineate the unity and progress of the APC as the one and only party in Nigeria.
“The party that has the interest of the people, the party that wants to keep making Nigeria better and the party that loves Nigeria and Nigerians.”
