Plateau APC Ready To Welcome‘Rejected’ PDP Members – Shagaya

The All Progressives Congress in Plateau
State has expressed readiness to welcome
members of the Peoples Democratic Party,
PDP, whose bid to return to the party was
rejected by the state chapter of the party.
The state PDP had asked some of the
members aspiring to be governor, to stop
parading themselves as members of the
party and to stop using the party’s logo and
platform for their campaigns.
The members include former governors
Joshua Dariye and Fidelis Tapgun, Mr. John
Alkali, Mr. Jimmy Cheto and Jonathan Sheni.
Former interim chairman of APC, Gen. John
Shagaya (retd), who spoke in Jos on
Wednesday, said the party’s doors were
open to joyously receive the rejected PDP
He said, “We are optimistic that the
aggrieved members of PDP would defect to
APC as the crisis in the ruling party deepens.
On our own, we are set to destabilise the
PDP in the state and ensure victory for our
party in the general election come 2015. We
are happy about the mistakes the ruling
party in the state is doing.
“What is happening now was bound to
happen and our party could provide an
alternative for disgruntled members, who are
unhappy with the way they have been
treated in PDP”.
Shagaya, who was the immediate past
Senator representing Plateau South, also
disclosed that he would be seeking reelection
into the seat in the 2015 elections.
