The All Progressive Congress (APC)  in Kebbi State has formally received the former governor of Kebbi State, Alhaji Usman Nasamu Dakingari, his deputy,  and 267,000 other members of the Peoples Democrat Party (PDP) who decamped to the party last month.

The symbolic ceremony took place at the Haliru Abdu stadium in Birnin Kebbi yesterday attended by Governor Bagudu , top echelon of APC in the state as well as mammoth crowd of the party.

Dakingari who ruled the state for eight years under PDP was ushered into the APC at a reception ceremony organised for him and other former top PDP who defected to APC .

Speaking during the decamping ceremony, chairman of the APC in Kebbi State,  Barrister Attahiru Maccido said the former PDP members decision to decamp to the APC was informed by the good governance of President Muhammad Buhari and that of Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu in Kebbi State.

According to him the decampees would be treated equally with the old members of APC. He however enjoined them to endeavour to follow the party constitution and be guided by the laws of APC.

He said “Their coming into the APC is symbolic and good omen for democracy in Kebbi, a turning point for APC .”
