2019 Election: Over 7000 dump APC for PDP in Plateau


Ahead of the 2019 general elections, no fewer than 7,235 members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Plateau State have dumped the broom and taken shelter under the umbrella of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.

The defectors were received by the Plateau PDP Chairman, Hon. Damishi Sango, during the commissioning of Kanam PDP office, inauguration of Chairmanship Campaign Committee and Appeal fund raising in Dengi, Kanam. Receiving them, Sango, represented by Vice Chairman, Plateau Central Zone, Hon. Benedict Shiknughul, commended them for taking “the right decision’’ in their political race. “Today, we welcome you into PDP with open arms to work with you towards our victory at the 2019 general elections at all levels.
