2023: Atiku To Meet Adamawa Defectors

Peoples Democratic Party has received 1,615 card-carrying members of the All Progressives Congress in Toungo Local Government Area of Adamawa State, on Saturday.

The defectors, who were protesting what they described as the failure of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to fulfill his campaign promises, as well as worsening insecurity, were received by the Chairman of the Adamawa State chapter of the PDP, Tahir Shehu.

The 1,615 APC defectors surrendered their APC membership at the ceremony organised to receive them into the PDP, in Toungo, on Saturday.

Speaking through their representatives, Mustapha Albashir, Alhaji Gana and Mallam Yahya Abubakar, they cited worsening insecurity, poverty and economic difficulties they had experienced under the regime of Buhari as reasons for their actions.

They regretted not seeing any progress since 2015 when they worked against the PDP to install the APC.
They now felt convinced that the PDP was the right place because of the real change brought by Governor Fintiri since 2019, when the PDP ousted the APC in the state.

Abubakar said, “Our journey into the APC was meaningless, we ganged up to defeat the PDP since 2015 but we have realised we made a mistake.
One of the reasons over 1,615 of us decided to come here today even though we are actually more than 6,000 joining the PDP, is because after seven years, we cannot reckon with any tangible thing the party has achieved under Buhari more than worsening insecurity, stagnation and poverty.
