*Allege they were made to swear by Quran
By Aisha Wakaso in Minna
Over 2000 members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) on Tuesday in Suleja decamped to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Speaking on behalf of the decampees, Alhaji Abdullahi L. Sulieman, who was three times Suleja Council chairman, said they had to leave APC because it had no direction, adding that they were also made to swear by the Quran to abide by rules and directives from the party.
”APC is the only party that will make you swear with the Quran to abide by rules and directives of the Party which we did but when we discovered that it is all deceit, we had to leave the Party back to the PDP where we left from”
“We had to return to the party that we can see its structures and development on ground because there is no ward in the 25 Local Government Councils in the state that has not received dividend of democracy through the Ward Development Project.”
He also stated that the over 2000 decampees are from ten wards in the state, adding that more will join them.
According to Sulieman, he was not financially induced to return to the PDP adding that he returned because of his conviction that PDP has better things in stock for the people of the state.
