Following the alleged news of defection orchestrated by members of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in Toto Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Area has reacted to the rumours making the round most especially on the Social Media platforms of members decamp to the former.
The Party said it is not amused by the character exhibited by some PDP Members who gathered at Ugya market calling the innocent, but hardworking traders decampees from APC.
The Chairman of Toto local government Council, Hon Aliyu Abdullahi, in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant, ( Media and Publicity) Yahaya Idris, explained that the so-called Ugya decamping was nothing but a gathering of some persons who have lost political relevance at all fronts and their next option is to embark on self-destruction by dishing out lies.
“The PDP in its desperation, has decided to create drama at the market square to give the impression that all the traders present were their supporters
“I therefore, advise the opposition to surrender and dump their perceived ambition as the people of the Toto Local Government Area will join the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu bandwagon in the coming elections
“I also appeal to the people of Toto LGA not to despair despite lapses associated with the last Party Primaries
“With your support, the Party – APC will wax stronger so that we also will be part of national victory come 2023 elections. I urge you all not to be left out in the formation of the new progressive Nigeria” The statement read in part.
