The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that many members of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would soon join its ranks.

The defectors from the PDP to the APC are expected to come from Kebbi, Niger and some North-Central states.

This was disclosed by the Kebbi State Publicity Secretary of the APC, Sanni Dododo during a meeting on Thursday, March 19.

“In Niger State, the governor did not perform so his deputy came with some advisers and members of the PDP to our party and they hatched a plan. Some decided to stay in the PDP but by next week, you will see many of them will join the APC,” Dododo said.

“So the issue is that Niger State is 90 per cent of APC. In Kebbi, the Speaker, the Deputy Speaker, Chief Whip and Deputy Whip and nine others in the House of Assembly have joined the APC from the PDP,” he added.

“Five commissioners and local government chairmen have joined us. So North-West and most parts of North-Central are now speaking with one voice. Because of some strong governors like Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State who are giving us support we are spreading. So we will deliver during the elections,” he said.

Dododo also said that the mass defection would occur within the next four days.
