The Adamawa State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has received 1,615 members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Toungo LGA.

The defectors were received by the state’s PDP Chairman, Barrister Tahir Shehu, at a ceremony in Toungo at the weekend.

Speaking through their representatives, Mustapha Albashir, Alhaji Gana and Mallam Yahya Abubakar, the defectors cited rising insecurity and economic difficulties under President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration as reasons for their action.

Abubakar said, “One of the reasons over 1,615 of us decided to come here today, even though we are 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.”

While receiving the defectors, Shehu said the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, had asked that he would like to shake hands with the 1,615 new members who had demonstrated courage in protesting against bad governance.
