The Minister of Police Affairs, Maigari Dingyadi, who spoke at the event, described the development as a success.
“The APC administration under the watch of President Muhammadu Buhari has brought positive developmental projects aimed at impacting the lives of people.“
“The government had for the past seven and half years continued to roll out sustainable programmes that impacted positively to the lives of the less privileged in the country.
“Therefore, I called on all of you to sustain more support for the victory of APC in order for the party to continue to provide more democratic dividends for our people,” he urged.
Speaking at the event, the state APC Chairman Isa Sadiq-Achida, described the defectors as pillars of democracy in the area.
