The Deputy Speaker of the Plateau State House of Assembly, Yusuf Gagdi, has left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressive Congress (APC).

Gagdi announced his decision on Tuesday, October 25, via a letter sent to the House.

The letter reads:

“Meanwhile, my constituency, my local government (Kanam Local Government Area) is an APC stronghold. There has been so much pressure from the people that voted me into power, that I should join the ruling party. After much consultation among people of my constituency, it dawned on me that my remaining in the opposition for long will be at my own peril.

“Hence, after due and wider consultations, I have decided to take the bold step, by announcing my decision to follow the dictates of my constituents. I have therefore decided to join my people in the ruling APC.”
