Aji defects to APC

Senator Abba Aji has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Aji, who served as Special Adviser on National Assembly Matters to the late President Umaru Yar’adua, told reporters in Maiduguri after his defection that Jonathan was responsible for the failure of the PDP at the polls.

The former PDP stalwart and his supporters were received by the APC Secretary, Hon. Bello Ayuba, at the APC campaign office.

According to him, PDP is dead in Borno State, adding that, “former President Jonathan, who was the major benefactor of the PDP, chose to kill the party for his selfish interest”.

He said the PDP under Dr. Jonathan was characterised by “indiscipline, corruption and lack of patriotism, not only among members of the party, but among government officials and political appointees”. He added: “This situation made  Nigerians lost hope and decided to not to give their votes to the PDP at the national level, but to massively vote President Muhammad Buhari on the platform of the ruling APC and I am sure   Nigerians will never regret voting for the APC.”

Aji, who unfolded his intention to contest the senatorial seat, following the demise of Senator Zanna, said he has all it takes to fill the vacuum. He prayed for the repose of the soul of the deceased senator.

He blamed the Boko Haram crisis on unemployment, abject poverty and injustice.
