The Jigawa State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Wednesday debunked media reports that about 1,500 of its members have defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Isa Bello Gwadayi, the party’s Secretary described the report as falsehood being perpetrated by those who have been caught by the wind of change that would soon blow in the state.
The Secretary clarified that he is an indigene of Buji Local Government and he also resides there, stressing that there is no village or community known as Illirowa as was quoted in some media report.
He said: “As an indigene of Buji Local Government Area and who resides in the Local Government Area, there is no village with the name Illirowa in the area.
“Secondly, what is the APC member representing Buji at the Jigawa State House of Assembly doing that will warrant another member representing another local government (Birnin Kudu) who did not come but sent someone to represent him to receive decampees?
“Thirdly, no APC local government party chairman of Buji and party elders in attendance.
According to the PDP Scribe in the state, the decamping report was nothing short of imagination of those behind it, adding that such deceitful report shouldn’t emanate from a political party in power.
