Hajiya Yar-Sokoto Jega, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) women’s leader for Kebbi Central, has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
She disclosed this on Wednesday during a welcome ceremony in Birnin Kebbi.
According to her, she left the party because of injustice and a lack of purposeful leadership.
Jega explained that she decided to join the APC because of the numerous achievements of Governor Atiku Bagudu, saying that she joined the party with over 800 supporters.
“I have been in PDP for many years, they have nothing to show to people, and we have been neglected by the party. I even use my money for the cause of the party, yet I have not seen any change in my people, especially the women that I represent.
“Prior to my defection, I was in charge of eight local government areas under the PDP, I left with most of my followers,” Jega said.
Some of the dignitaries at the ceremony were Alhaji Abubakar Kana-Zuru, the state APC Chairman; Alhaji Sani Zauro, the Chairman of the state APC Elders Forum and Alhaji Faruk Musa-Yaro, Personal Assistant to the state governor.
