Nasiru Usman, the All Progressives Congress (APC) treasurer in Katsina state, has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) along with an estimated 4,000 others.

According to a report on NAN, the defectors presented themselves to the Kankia local government chapter of their new political party on Saturday, April 1.

Speaking on behalf of other defectors, Usman said that they decided to jump ship because the APC neglected them.

According to him, “It is a fact that I led many others in the struggle that ensured victory for the APC in the 2015 general election. “I campaigned vigorously against the then PDP candidate, Musa Nashuni, who is from my own local government – Kankia – and ensured he lost even his village to Aminu Masari of APC.

He said: “We left the party because of neglect. The 4,000 people defecting with me are from the 10 political wards of Kankia.”

Meanwhile, it has gathered that Musa Nashuni, Governor Masari’s PDP rival in 2015, said that the PDP would not repeat the mistakes that led to the loss of the 2015 elections. The former governorship candidate urged PDP members to remain focused, steadfast and united so as to be able to wrestle power from its rivals in 2019.
