The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) women leader for Kebbi Central, Kebbi State, Hajiya Yar-Sokoto Jega has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday.
She disclosed this to newsmen while speaking at a ceremony in Birnin Kebbi on Wednesday.
She stated that she dumped the party because of injustice and a lack of purposeful leadership.
According to Jega, she decided to join the APC because of the numerous achievements of Gov. Atiku Bagudu, noting 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 used my money for the cause of the party, but yet I have not seen any change with my people, especially the women that I represent.
“Before my defection, I was in charge of eight local government areas under the PDP, I left with most of my followers,” Jega said.
Among 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.
