2019: Ex-Senator, 5,000 PDP Supporters Defect to APC
“I am very happy to join APC with over 5,000 supporters, together we are going to work for the party to become stronger in the state and the country in general.”
A former Senator under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Basheer Lado, said this while decamping to the All Progressives Congress(APC) with over 5,000 supporters in a grand reception in Kano.
The event took place at the popular Sani Abacha stadium before a large crowd of supporters.
Lado, who was accompanied to the venue by party supporters, was received by Deputy National Chairman of the APC, Segun Oni on behalf of the party’s national chairman, John Oyegun.
The former Senator, who represented Kano Central from 2011 to 2015, lost to the immediate past Governor of the state, Rabi’u Kwankwaso, during the 2015 general elections.
Speaking shortly after he was received by the party, Lado promised to work for the development of the party not only at the state level but the country at large.
