2019: 60 APC Support Groups Dump Party, Join PDP
Abuja – A coalition of 60 support groups from the All
Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday dumped the party to
join the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
The groups, which lamented that they were used and dumped
by the APC, added that they decided to dump the ruling party
in the interest of Nigeria, as the nation has no future in the
hand of APC.
Speaking at the national secretariat of the party at the official
defection of the groups, the former National Youth Vanguard
Co-ordinator of APC, Honourable Jubril Gazama, disclosed
that the mass defection of the Support Groups was a collective
decision of members having realized that they were deceived
and used them.
He said: “Our pulling out of our supports for the APC was a
collective decision, we all decided to quit so that we can have
a future called Nigeria.
“They used us and they dumped us, we were all over the
places, manning the polling booths to ensure victory for the
Party which we did.
“Now 2019 is approaching again, we don’t want the repeat of
that mistake, rather we have decided to quit and come to the
PDP, we have accepted the party’s apologies and we are going
to the field for the mass mobilisation of votes for the total
victory of its Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar
and other candidates in the elections.”
Also speaking, the National Woman leader of the Support
Groups, Ambassador Blessing Sunday, explained the reason
why they dumped the party, adding that the groups worked
and ensured total victory for APC under the illusion that the
government would make lives more better for Nigerian but
only to come to power and chained down the nation.
She narrated how the Support Groups went round the entire
country to solicit votes for the party only to be dumped without
even a handshake either by the President Muhammadu
Buhari or the leadership of the Party and vowed that such
would never repeat itself again.
Welcoming the decampees, the National Chairman of the
party, Prince Uche Secondus, who was represented by the
National Secretary, Senator Ibrahim Tsauri, tasked the group
to agree and resolve to work together and ensure victory for
He said: “We all know what we are feeling in Nigeria. People
are talking of what they are going to eat, nobody is doing any
“PDP made mistakes and it was our mistake that brought
Nigeria to the level it is now. Today, this PDP is repositioned,
rebranded and it is going to win.
“Internal democracy has been built into the system of the
party. Impunity has been taken away from the party and
imposition has been given a red card. You are the people that
brought APC on board and you are going to shun APC and
bring PDP on board.
“Take it or leave it, PDP is good in governance but APC was a
merger and cannot be good in governance. We are good in
governance, take us back to governance, they are good in
opposition, take them back to opposition,” Tsauri challenged
the coalition.
He assured them that they will never regret joining the PDP
and assured them of the party’s strong support and
In remarks, the National Youth Leader of the Party, Hon.
Sunday Ude-Okoye disclosed the mass defection of the Support
Groups to the PDP was a good omen to what should be
expected in the 2019 elections.
He said: “On that day the National Chairman of the APC,
Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, President Buhari and other APC
apologies will look backward and it will dawn on them they
are left with nobody again.”
