By Hammed Shittu in Ilorin

About 1,000 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State including a former Federal Commissioner of the National Population Commission (NPC), Alhaji Abubakar Ndakene, at the weekend defected from the PDP to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)‎ in the state.

The defectors, according to THISDAY checks, cut across the four wards in Shonga community in Edu‎ Local Government council of the state.

The defectors, THISDAY learnt, were said to have followed the rules of APC by making their defection public in their wards so as to bring them closer to the party members in the wards.

They said their defection was due to the sterling leadership of APC in the state led by Senate President Bukola Saraki‎ and the achievements so far recorded by the current APC-led government of Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed.
