About 4,000 party members have dumped opposition parties to join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwali Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory.
The FCT Minister of State, Dr Ramatu Aliyu, made his known in a statement by her Special Assistant on Media, Mr Austine Elemue, on Sunday in Abuja.
Receiving the decampees, Aliyu assured them of justice and fairness amongst members of APC and called on others who are yet to join to do so.
The minister, who described the event as a ‘harvest’ of over 4,000 members, expressed delight that most of the returnees are former leaders of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in the FCT.
Aliyu urged them to use their political weight to ensure victory for the party come 2022 and beyond.
She, however, appealed to both old and new members of the ruling party to work together in peace and be law abiding and emphasised on the supremacy of party decisions.
“We received over 4,000 of our brothers and sisters who have decided on their own to join the ruling APC.
“They came from various political parties especially the major opposition parties, the PDP and APGA. We appreciate all of them,” Aliyu said.
Usman expressed the confidence that come February 12, 2022, the APC would win the entire six area councils and the 62 wards in FCT, NAN reports.
