Mass defection hits Kogi APC as over 100 youths decamp to PDP

The ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) in Kogi State has suffered deflation as over a hundred youths have defected to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ofu Local Government Area of the State, Fresh Angle International can report.

Speaking on behalf of defectors in Agojoeju, Iboko /Efakwu Wards in Ofu Local Government Area, leader of the group identified simply as Marvis attributed their decision to join the opposition party to alleged failed promises of the APC led government at all levels.

“We are set to work in line with the PDP directives in re-positioning the party towards winning the subsequent elections”, he said.

Our Kogi State Correspondent reports that the ceremony held at the party office in Agojoeju Iboko/Efakwu Wards and the Local Government Chairman of PDP, Hon. Wajah Idris Attabo described the defection as the end of APC in the ward as well as the Local Government Area.

Wajah promised to give all members equal right and level playing field to achieve their desires.

While receiving the defectors, the member representing Ofu Constituency in the Kogi State House of Assembly, Dr. Friday Alih, thanked them for their bold steps and urged them to keep faith with the party as measures have been put in place to resolve the national crisis rocking the party within the shortest time in the overall interest of Nigerians.
