Few months to the Anambra Governorship election, Kogi Governorship Candidate under the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA in 2019 election, Sheik Ibrahim Jibrrin has defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress APC.

In a decamping ceremony held in his polling unit at Anyigba, the former APGA Governorship Candidate said his return to APC was based on the return of internal democracy and crises that bedevilled the party in the area and the state.

The youngest APGA Governorship candidate was received amidst tumultuous welcome by the party leader in the area and Chairman, Dekina Local Government, Prince Ishaq Shaibu Okolo.

He said democracy is a game of interest, therefore, the harmonisation of warring interest will be heeded towards seamless and acceptable ressolution.

He commended Nigeria President, Muhammadu Buhari for rising to the occasion by the removal of the former National Working Committee NWC members, saying this has charted a new course for APC to retain power in 2023.

He assured the stakeholders and promised to work for the collective interest of party members, followers and supporters.

He maintained that leadership zeal of Kogi Governor, Yahaya Bello has stabilised the party in the state and by extension Nigeria.

‘With a grateful heart, I wish to bring to the notice of my supporters, friends and well wishers that officially, I would by the grace of God return to APC today by 10am at my polling unit in Anyigba, Dekina LGA, Kogi State.’

‘The return is based on the fact that I am one of the founding members of APC. As such, I left the party when the then leadership of the party couldn’t stand firm to harmonize the interests of the stakeholders, and their inability to give everyone listening ears. All these plausible factors triggered me to find another platform.’

‘I wish to also use this opportunity to thank President Muhammad Buhari for the gallant step he took by dissolving the then National Working Committee of the party.’

‘I would also like to thank the stakeholders of the party both within and outside the state for their commitments towards the repositioning of the party.’

‘Finally, my special thanks goes to His Excellency Alhaji. Yahaya Adoza Bello, the Executive Governor of Kogi State and the leader of the party in Kogi State. Words can’t appreciate you all, but without much talks, I would like to say thanks for your efforts to reposition the party for the task ahead.’
