Yar-Sokoto Jega, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) women leader for Kebbi Central, has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ms Jega said this when she spoke at a ceremony in Birnin Kebbi on Wednesday.
Ms Jega said she left the party because of injustice and lack of purposeful leadership.
She explained that she decided to join the APC because of the numerous achievements of Governor Atiku Bagudu.
According to her, she left the PDP for APC with over 800 supporters.
“I have been in PDP for many years. They have nothing to show to people and we have been neglected by the party. I even use my money for the cause of the party. Yet I have not seen any change with my people, especially the women that I represent,” said Ms Jega.
She added, “Prior to my defection, I was in charge of eight local government areas under the PDP, I left with most of my followers.”
Some of the dignitaries at the ceremony were APC chair in the state, Abubakar Kana-Zuru; Sani Zauro, chairman of the APC Elders Forum in Katsina and Faruk Musa-Yaro, the governor’s personal assistant.
