The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun, has stated that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Katsina State is dead and buried.

President Muhammadu Buhari is from Katsina.

Oyegun made this known on Saturday during a grand reception organized by the state APC to receive defectors from the PDP in Katsina.

He said: “Prominent politicians like Sen Idah, Barrister Ya’u Gwajo-Gwajo, a two time speaker of Katsina House Assembly, and Mr Nura Khalih also a two-time governorship candidate of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) have all defected to APC today.

“Now that prominent people and their followers have joined the APC, then, we have the right to declare PDP, APGA, and PDM as dead and buried in the state.

"The cahirman of the ruling party also called on the people of the state to support President Muhammadu Buhari.

“When the APC administration took over the mantle of leadership in 2015, the Nation Electricity supply was only 3000 megawatts.

“Today, the electricity supply is 7000 megawatts. The country has witnessed an increase of 4000 megawatts,” he said.

Oyegun revealed that the president had used his experience to control insecurity in the country to its barest minimum.

The chairman said that President Buhari had introduced several ways of reducing poverty through giving agriculture and economic empowerment to the people.

Earlier, the Katsina state Gov. Alhaji Aminu Masari, commended the top PDP members that defected to APC, saying that it was an indication of good governance in the state.

He said that the top politicians that joined APC did so out of their own interest and they were ready to serve the people of the state.
