Hundreds of PDP Youth groups lay down arms, defect to APC

The opposition PDP Youth groups today announced their defection from the party to the ruling All Progressives Congress APC, citing being used as thugs by their former party, PDP as a major reason for their action.

Speaking while announcing their defection from the PDP, leaders of the groups, Baba Karami and Garba Lawal (Vice) who spoke separately when they were received by the former Gusau local government council chairman, Alhaji Babangida Abdullahi Fagacin Gusau, the youth leaders lamented how the PDP used them as political thugs causing disorder and lawlessness on the instructions of the PDP leaders.

They also accused the PDP of abusing their status as leaders of tomorrow as they were given weapons and drugs which they used against many of their victims while the PDP leaders’ children were made to go to school without having to participate in thuggery.

They begged the APC and the good people of Zamfara for forgiveness on the pains they inflicted on them, surrendered the local weapons they used in intimidating people and promised never to go back to the bad ways.

The youths who described Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle and his leadership style as the best thing to happen to Zamfara, urged him to engage them positively so that they can contribute to the growth and development of Zamfara.

While receiving them, the former Chairman of Gusau local government, Alhaji Babangida Abdullahi expressed happiness over the right decision taken by the youth.

He said the Matawalle-led leadership in Zamfara aims to empower the youth rather than make them marauders terrorizing the citizens especially during political activities.

The former council boss who assured the new APC members that they will be treated equally as other members, said they will be engaged into positive ventures in the state.

He noted that the defecting youths have further exposed how the PDP under the flagship of Dauda Lawal Dare intends to occupy the minds of the youth calling on other youths yet to realize that, to re-examine how they are being used so that they can come to the APC and be good citizens.
