Just months to the 2019 general elections and less than 10 days to the Kaduna State local council polls, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has been dealt a huge blow by main opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as it is set to welcome thousands of decampees.
It was reliably gathered that the official decamping ceremony will take place on Monday 7th May, 2018.
The new members to PDP will be welcomed by Senator Ibrahim Tsauri, PDP National Secretary.
Several top PDP faithful from Kaduna State and the nation are expected to storm Bajju Town Hall Zonkwa, Zango Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State for the grand reception.
It would be recalled that Southern Kaduna since 1999 has been a stronghold of PDP.
The only PDP Senator from the North West geopolitical zone, Distinguished Senator Danjuma La’ah is from the area, as well as several federal lawmakers.
The only PDP lawmakers in the Kaduna State House of Assembly are also from there, where the party still receives huge grassroots support.
If the decamping goes on as scheduled, it may affect APC’s chances of gaining stronghold in the area from the results of the LG polls, which the Kaduna State Independent Electoral Commission (KADSIECOM) has slated for May 12 across the 23 local government areas of the state.
