Over 50,000 persons, yesterday, defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Taraba State.
A member of the Board of Trustees of the APC, Prof Dalhatu Sangari, who received the defectors in Wukari at a grand ceremony, said the people came from across the 52 political wards in southern senatorial zone of the state.

Sangari stated that the occasion was a major milestone in the party’s efforts to take over leadership of the state, adding that it was a good development for the APC in the state.
One of the defectors, Gen. Adamu Ibrahim (rtd), said his decision to move to the APC from UDP was because he was in the APC initially and only left because of perceived injustice but was now convinced that the party is ready to offer level playing ground for everyone.
