Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi, National Caretaker Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), has today in Kaduna received back into the Party a stalwart of the All Progressive Congress, (APC), and one time PDP Kaduna State Chairman, Yaro Makama, amid hordes of ‘broom burning’ defecting APC members in Rigachikun, Igabi Local Government, Kaduna State.
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar’s example of quitting the APC seems to be gathering steam ahead of the 2019 general elections as the PDP in Kaduna State has started getting back some of its Chieftains that left the party before the 2015 elections.
Alhaji Yaro Makama and thousands of his supporters have formally taken to the shade of the umbrella. The defection of the APC members may not be unconnected with what many have described as the way and manner the affairs of the ruling party is been run in the state.
It is also speculated that other Chieftains of the ruling party who were initially members of the PDP may soon return to their root, with many other APC members expected to dump the party for either the PDP or other political parties.
