About three thousands members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State have dumped the party and joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The Sunday’s defection brought the number of defectors from APC to the ruling PDP in the state to about 4,000.
The decampees gave the internal wrangling among their leader and lack of unity of purpose amongst them as reasons for their action.
Receiving the defectors in Ilorin, the state capital, the national leader of the PDP and President of the Senate, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki, assured Kwarans that a new administration under the PDP in 2019 will benefit them than the incumbent APC.
Saraki, while addressing the former APC members said the PDP remains the only hope for true representation of the people of Kwara at the federal level.
