Over 1000 All Progressives Congress (APC) Members from Bungudu Local Government Area of Zamfara State believed to be supporters of former Governor AbdulAziz Yari and Sen. Kabiru Marafa have decamped to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

The FidelinfoNews gathered that the decamping members were received by the state PDP Chairman, Alh. Tukur Umar Danfulani, who later presented them to Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle at his residence in Gusau, the state capital.

Leader of the decampees, Comrade Abdullahi Danda Bungudu, said they were at the Governor’s residence to register their support after declaring their defection at the state PDP Secretariat and being officially received by the state Party Chairman.

Comr. Bungudu noted that their defection was inspired by the Governor’s handling of the security situation in the state, and numerous projects embarked on in the space of 2 years since the Governor assumed office.

While responding, Gov. Matawalle ascertained his commitment to development of the state, and also commended the new members for their foresight.

Tinubu, Akande backing of Fagbemi, reconciliation moves unsettles Saraki led Kwara PDP

Published

The endorsement of Prince Sunday Fagbemi as Kwara State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, by the national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and the first Chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande, is now generating ripples especially within the PDP in the state.

The expected defection of prominent stakeholders of APC in Kwara to Bukola Saraki led PDP has also been aborted by leaders of the party at a meeting of the concerned stakeholders with Tinubu in Abuja on Tuesday.

Investigations revealed that some stakeholders who seem to have irreconcilable ambitions have been cautioned after information of their several meetings and negotiations with the opposition on their likely defection leaked with the National leaders reiterating that genuine reconciliation is the first step.

The report reaching us has now confirmed the involvement of the aforementioned leaders in brokering absolute peace in the party ahead of the 2023 election.

This development is not going down well with the Saraki led opposition who are leaving no stone unturned to unseat the present Governor and are now restrategizing following the outcome of the peace meeting with Asiwaju Tinubu in Abuja which gives a green light to reconciliation in Kwara APC.

It would be recalled that Prince Sunday Fagbemi visited Asiwaju Tinubu and Chief Akande on the way forward towards enhancing the unity of the party in Kwara with the National leaders assuring him of their full support in his effort to reconcile all stakeholders of the party.

According to a reliable source, similar meetings will begin to hold in a few days at the instance of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Chief Bisi Akande to further solidify genuine reconciliation among stakeholders of the party in Kwara.
