A former lawmaker in Zamfara, Alhaji Manir Gidanjaja, who defected to
the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) three weeks ago, has dumped the party
and returned to the APC.
Gidanjaja had on August 8 announced his defection to PDP and was received into the party at Government House in Gusau.
am happy to be here today to clear myself from some circumstances I
found myself. I want to tell the entire people of Zamfara State and
Nigeria that I have returned from PDP to the APC. I returned to APC
because my political supporters are not willing to join PDP. I want to
use this opportunity to apologise to our APC leader in the state, Alhaji
Abdul’aziz Yari, state APC Chairman, Alhaji Lawal Liman and entire APC
members in this state over what happened.” Gidanjaja said.
seeking your forgiveness over what happened. I am sure those very close
to me are aware of the circumstances I found myself which led to my
defection to PDP. I joined PDP last month due to some reasons beyond my
control and since my defection, I have not been recognized, I have not
seen good political leadership in PDP.” he continued.
