Former Kebbi State Governor Saidu Dakingari, his deputy Ibrahim  Aliyu with over 267,000  Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members in Kebbi state have finally decamped to the All Progressive Congress  (APC).
The state APC Chairman, Alhaji Attahiru Maccido, formally received the decampees  at a  Haliru abdul Stadium in Birnin Kebbi,  the state capital. 
According to the APC  Chairman,  the defectors did not give any condition for their decision to join the APC fold in the state.
He however said  they defected as a result of leadership style of President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Atiku Bagudu, especially in the areas of security, agriculture and economic sectors.
He assured the decampees that they would be accorded equal opportunity and privileges  in the party, adding that “the doors of the party are still open for others to join.”
Speaking on behalf of the defectors, former Governor Dakingari said the defection was a result of deep thoughts in the past three years since he left power.
“ I joined the APC not for gain but for what President Muhammadu Buhari and Atiku Bagudu have been doing at the federal and state levels respectively for progress,peace and unity.
“I call on all those I have offended to forgive me and I forgive those who offended me too,” he said.
In his remarks, Governor Bagudu said the state would continue to move forward with the coming of new members into the party. 
“Our state is blessed with  mineral resources but improper coordination had been the stumbling block toward exploitation of the resources.
“With the cooperation we have now, we will achieve greatness. If we are truly committed to our aims and objectives of moving our state to greater heights,” he said.
The APC North -West National Chairman, Alhaji Inuwa Abdulkadir, congratulated the defectors for joining the party. He  said the successes recorded by Governor  Bagudu was monumental.
